-it says "start XP fromHDD2", not "install", and of course you have to have a 2nd HDD with an XP installed on it to run it.

-You double posted in the XP forum, it is not clear wether you want to run XP from USB or run XP SETUP from USB.

-You are mixing the difficulties with a beta ServicePack, and an nLite modified source. Did you not remove ability to install from HDD ?

When using Nlite did you select Operating System Options-->Manual Install and Upgrade for removal? You must NOT in order to install from USB. Check if you have winnt32.exe in your I386, if you don't have it- then you did select that option and will need another source.

Is your XP version English? If not- then this file must have been removed by Nlite or you. Find it on your original copy.

and one more error occures .. as i finised all job i boot with my usb its works .. but in 3rd option which hi INSTAL WINDOWS XP FOR HDD2 ... as i select this .. there was an error ... unable to read from HDD2 check the location or some think like that ... need help ..
Well, did you managed to complete Setup or not?

That option is as explained above- if you install on SECOND hard disk.

One thing more my usb have file sytem FAT16 and C: is NTFS ...
Please try to be clear when asking questions, what does FAT16 and NTFS on both disk have to do with anything discussed above? :wacko:

Generally- yes, your addons should work just as installed from a CD. Why don't you give it a try first, and if you have problems then ask?
