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.

Windows ce core 5.0 and we just bought new netbook called delstar and i try to get new windows but it wont work ! how it work with it without cd drivers! i puzzled this computer is limited!


if it has a USB port then u may use a pendrive and change the boot seq in BIOS to boot from USB drive
in the pendrive u must have all the WinXP OS install files...
use another PC having USB slot and a CD drive,
first make a pen drive bootable by formating it and copying the system files....(check what's the drive letter in which the pendrive is shown on MyComputer...it will be listed as "Removable Disk")
Note the drive letter say D: or E: or G: etc
then go to
Start / Run type
cmd
u will get a new black window
in the black window type
cd..
again type
cd..
u will go to c:\>
here type
cd windows
it will take u to
C:\Windows
here type
cd system32
so now it will look like this
c:\windows\system32>
here type
format e: /s or G: /s or E: /s based on the drive letter that u noted earlier
use another PC to just copy all files form a WinXp install CD to that formated pen drive and use that to boot your above PC that does nto have CD rom drive to install the Win OS

Unable to format the cruser pendrive


Far too often these little things have an almost invisible read/write protect button on them. Look carefully, over the entire surface of the USB Flash Drive. You might have this switch turned to Write Protect, which means there is nothing you can do, until you turn it the other way, and allow the device to be written to.

Cheers!
