First - it is amazing guys, you deserve everything good, you work really hard for this. Im reading from since 2 days, Im amazed
I have a problem with usb_prep, and couldnt solve this - read nearly everything, but still couldnt solve - so I need some help from you guys.
I just got a Vaio TZ91 japanase, with only a 64gb SSD disk, no cdrom, no floppy.
So I want to install windows XP from USB key! It is really fun trying to do this
1- My laptop boots from USB stick
2- I choose TXT setup
3- I create partition C, but not format, quit with F3
4- Again I choose TXT setup, this time I choose C and format with quick NTFS format, and it copies files
5- I choose GUI setup, it starts but then I get error:
Windows couldnt find the file: asms
and it is trying to look for it (I will write exact error next time, now formatted usb again)
If I change this:
U is my usb stick
then it accepts, abut asks again for another file.
Even I enter manually U:/&WINNet... everytime - after a while, it couldnt find files like NT5.CAT etc
I think the problem is, in GUI mode it cant get the i386 files folder, what I do wrong, do you have any idea?
Thanks a lot from now on!
Edit: I use a HP 4GB USB Stick as for usb drive
