This message really is for testing if the installation boots up, you can leave the USB memory but change the boot priority to hard disk instead of USB device at BIOS, in this way the installed XP should start and finishes the installation, copying any file from USB if needed.

INSTALLATION


Hello,

I don't think this is possible. Still we can work on this.

Even I am verymuch Intersted with these kind of issues. I haven't tried installing XP on USB flash drive. But I installed the XP on USB harddrive and it worked.

We can try this with your co-operation. To boot with the USB devices, first your computer or laptop should have the option to boot with the USB devices. You can check in BIOS, under BOOT order for this option.

If USB boot option is not there, then you cannot boot with the Flash drive, not only flash drive all USB devices. They will work only after booting into Windows.

Comming to installation procedure, installtion is same as installing the XP on harddrive. While installing the XP, at partition page, you can see the USB flash drive, select it and continue the installtion.

If your computer has the option to boot with the USB devices and if the flash drive won't boot into Windows after installtion, then we have to set Flash drive as Active partition from Disk Management, and then we can try. In Disk Management, right click on the USB drive and select set active partition. If it won't allow to set the USb flash drive as active, then it is not possible to install XP on flash drive.

Even I googled everywhere on how to do this, but not information.
Try that and let me know the status. But I am sure, it is possible on Pocket drivers or USB harddrives.
