USB Flash Drives with ReadyBoost Feature are required to use the feature of Windows Vista. First U will need this and then just plug it in USB Port, Right Click on the Drive you will find a tab to configure the device as RAM.

Note : Tab appears on all USB Flash Drives but the feature is configurable only over readyboost enabled ones

So the directory will change to G:>
Now type cd boot and press enter
Now the interface will be like G:boot>
Then type bootsect.exe /nt60 h: (where h is the drive letter of your pen drive)
Now you will get a successful message like below

I'm Having problem with Vista, not detecting Pen Drive


Unplug the pen drive before booting (newer laptops support booting from a USB drive, and they restore your "healthy restore point".

Format the Pen drive from Disk Management (right click on computer, choose manage, select Disk Management) to 32 bit fat, this leaves it compatible with Windows 98 SE, but the 16 Bit seems to give Vista fits. Good luck.
