Backup Win XP to a bootable ISO?
Posted 19 September 2011 - 06:58 AM
Will all previously installed apps work normally after booting from that ISO - under what conditions?

none that i know of . it is technically impossible i guess. but you can add the IMG or VHD file to a bootable iso and boot as FILEDISK or MEM (DiskLess) way .
FILEDISK if you have EWF enabled , will not be beneficial , since you wont be able to save changes to the IMG . it will be read-only.
i have never tried my RamXP and Ram03 from ISO file , but i guess it is possible as long as the iso remain contiguous (if from USB).

The IMG or ISO purpose? Be able to boot it to RAM from an internal HD for servicing the PC instead of running service tasks from an external HD or Thumb.

Can someone suggest a very small Win XP based service CD that can boot on an old laptop with 32 Mb RAM (which BIOS doesn't support boot from USB), and allows to install and run some extra apps to a RAM drive for accessing the laptop's rarity Serial Port directly?
