hello, :thumbup

not sure if anyone had done this yet with help of the www.usboot.org manual?

after an afternoon reading, doing, testing and many cups of coffee, i got this
to work on my 500GB external disk and can run windows my xp on any pc.
it also allows me to install drivers [network first], programs and even windows
update.

it is not so much work as mentioned on 911cd.net post from dietmar:
http://www.911cd.net...showtopic=14181
but i do like this work too and get it to work for me

problem:
the windows running on my usb device does not see my sata hdd on the test
laptop. so i need to find out what drivers i need to see these partitions.

rgds :whistle:

ps
if you need quick help, let me know

Just to disambiguate.

This Forum is "Install Windows from USB", as OPPOSED to "Run Windows from USB" or "Install Windows on USB".

With all due respect :), your report is not really news, the usboot.org is online since 2006 ;), we might ask ...Tim... but I guess that the method made USB booting XP for a few tens of thousands people, maybe hundreds of thousands.

And as well, I doubt the "any" in this:

and can run windows my xp on any pc.

How did you solve different HALs and different processors?

You might be interested in this :unsure: :

jaclaz :unsure:
i admit the 'any' part in your helpful reply. on the other hand i have a live xp that does not bother so much what pc
it is using since it will not come up with the 'found new hardware' msg. and i have used it on too many pc's that where
having an issue e.g. missing ntldr. the only problem i have seen in the above mentioned live xp is with sata hdd and
was hoping someone had a solution to this. for now i found it has something to do with iastor. sorry for posting in the
wrong part of the forum and thank you for the reply :thumbup
