where u use these commands
1. diskpart 2. select disk 1 3. clean 4. create partition primary 5. select partition 1 6. active 7. format fs=[i][b]fat32[/b][/i] 8. assign 9. exit 10. xcopy d:\*.* /s/e/f e:\ (Copy Windows Vista's DVD ROM content to the Flash Drive E:)
being a sys admin I always carry my USB hard drive (Transcend Storejet 160gb). Its partitioned as single NTFS & not FAT32 as mentioned in the above code. I can't boot from the USB hard drive even though the bios supports it. I tried FixMBR on the USB hdd but it still din't work. All I get is "NTLdr missing".
Is there no way i can use my 2.5" USB hard drive to boot & install Vista from it, just like i'd do from a FlashDrive ??
any pointers pls, im desperate at achieving this.
