How to install XP OS using pendrive or removable HDD(No command prompt stuff)

  Always wanted to install OS using thumb drives. Just thought of sharing the procedure to install XP os using a pen drive.

  This post will help you to do that.

  The first step is to download a free application called WinSetupFromUSB_0-2-3 from any one of below link...


Then install the application in your computer. Open the application (If you are using vista or windows 7 right click the shortcut and select run as administrator). This application can be used for 2003 server as well.

Read the warning message, You must not use FAT16 file system on thumb drives greater that 2 gb. Also if you format the drive using ntfs the installation time will be less.

   If you have xp CD, copy the content of that CD to a separate folder, and select that folder as your windows xp source.

   Select the usb drive you want to make it bootable if you plugged more than one usb drive.

   Don't touch the remaining things. Click go. Wait for it to complete.

  That's it. You are ready to go. Use the pen drive to install os.

    Hope this helps..
