I have tried many ways to install windows xp from usb, its because my laptop doesnt have CD rom drive.
I downloaded USB multiboot 9 from my desktop, everythings fine. I could format my USB harddrive (HP tools, NTFS 60GB), copying xp setup file from CD (windows xp pro sp2). When i use the usb hard drive to boot on my laptop, i choose 1 txt mode to setup windows xp, then there are blue screen as follow:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
........

STOP : 0X0000007B (0XF99D8524, 0XC00000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)

Sorry for my bad english, please help me. Thank you very much.

Did you look at the sticked FAQs?
What model is your laptop?
Did you select USB hard disk (option 0), although it shouldn't be the cause for the BSOD.

Good, look at the FAQs and find what you can try about 0x0000007B.

If still giving BSOD try changing in BIOS SATA mode to IDE, do you have a similar option? Like AHCI off, SATA mode- IDE.... Is it's hard drive SATA?
Do you have any mass storage drivers slipstreamed? Have you tried slipstreaming BTS mass storage drivers?

If it's ATA, then there is no need to add that drivers pack.
Are you sure you created a new ntdetect.com following the link in FAQs and replaced the one in USB root?
If that doesn't help I am out of ideas, may be only an updated BIOS.

Can you prepare the USB disk selecting USB stick in the menu, and test if Text Setup loads fine? Do not continue installation, just check if you can reach the screen with Hard disks available.

Sorry, I have no more ideas how to help you :(

edit: However, you could install it by running DOS from USB disk and winnt.exe, use smartdrv for faster copying.
Look here for help:

Did winnt.exe run to the end properly? Di you format the hard drive prior to launching winnt.exe?
You may be having hardware failure or your XP source is missing a driver.
To rule out the first- check the disk with the tool from it's manufacturer. Let it run an extended test, which takes even hours.
If in doubt- use UBCD, which has the tools from all manufacturers and can easily installed on USB- there is a script inside the CD which does that for you.
Alternatively you can start Grub4DOS from the USB drive and map a floppy image of the tool you need. If you need details about this option- just ask.

Add a line to bottom of your boot.ini on USB disk:

C:\grldr="Start Grub4DOS"

Add grldr only from here to root of USB disk.

Copy the floppy image with the tool for your hard disk to root of USB disk, lets say it's myfloppy.img.
Create in root of USB disk MENU.LST. Add with Notepad to it:
title Start myfloppy
map --mem (hd0,0)/myfloppy.img (fd0)
map --hook
chainloader (fd0)+1
rootnoverify (fd0)

Test the laptop hard drive with extended test.

I don't think that is going to help.
Have you had any issues with this laptop before? What OS you had on it?
What are it's specifications?
Can you try after the hard disk test, to run Bart PE from USB on it? Random ideas, but hopefully somewhere the rabbit with jump out of the bushes.

In this case I'd suspect missing or incorrect drivers in your XP CD.
Did you build BartPE using the same CD? Did you include additional drivers? What PE version did you use?
When you tried to install from PE, how did you do it? When exactly it hanged or went crazy? What exactly happened?

Please answer those questions, your problem seems tricky enough and every bit of information from you may help. Please don't answer with one line only.

Yes i am using the same CD. After i get in bartpe, i cannot find my USB drive in A43 file management utility, so i cannot launch windows xp setup.

Did you launch BartPE from the same USB disk, which when PE is loaded cannot be found?
If yes- this is very weird for me, I'd wait others to give more ideas, or start a new topic in 911cd.net forums.

If no- you have to connect the other disk before starting PE, or use USB hotplug plugin like this:
http://www.911cd.net...showtopic=10163

When did the strange characters appear? Did you launch winnt32.exe from the laptop's internal disk?

Another (may be silly) idea- try with other source, XP SP1, 2003 may be...

Oh WOW, i made it at last. This is my way:

1) Format USB stick(256MB) with HP tools (windows 98 dos)
2) Copy Partition Magic to USB stick.

WINXP Installation:
1) Copy the \I386 folder from WinXP CD into the USB Harddisk (2GB FAT32)
2) Set my system BIOS to boot from USB.
3) Delete all partitions from the Laptop Hardisk using Partition Magic and create a new one with a main partition and a 1GB extended partition.
4) Set the main partition as active with Partiton Magic.
5) Reboot using the USB harddisk to effect partition changes.
6) Format and transfer DOS system to Laptop main partition using: x:\>format x: /s
7) Format the 1GB extended partition as well.
8) Run SMARTDRV
9) XCOPY \I386 from usb harddisk to laptop 1GB extended partition.
10) Copy SMARTDRV.EXE config.sys n himem.sys from the usb stick to laptop main partition.
11) Remove USB and reboot
12) Once in DOS, run SMARTDRV
13) Goto the extended partition \I386 folder and run WINNT

I thought i gonna get the "Unknow Hard Error" again, but i didnt!!!!!!!!! I used a whole week to figure out how to do it.... LOL Thank You very much!!
