the BIOS provides two ways to change the boot sequence.
By pressing F8 it provides a BIOS boot menu,
from which one can select a temporary desired boot device.
The USB-stick is seen as second Harddisk and can be selected as boot device.
This is usefull for booting from USB-stick Puppy Linux, BartPE or MS-DOS,
but it is not usefull for Windows XP Setup from USB-stick !
For Windows XP Setup from bootable USB-stick it is necessary to enter BIOS Setup by pressing [Del]
and change Boot settings more permanent so that Harddisk is used as first Boot device type
and USB-stick is seen as first Harddisk. In this case everything works very well.
In Windows Setup from USB-stick it is essential that also after Restart for the GUI-mode of Setup,
booting occurs again from USB-stick and that USB-stick remains to be seen as first harddisk = rdisk(0).
After Setup has completed, binifix4.cmd will make the necessary correction in boot.ini on computer harddisk
by changing rdisk(1) in rdisk(0).
