Download:  VHD_XP_Setup - Version 87

 

False Positive Alerts have been removed by recompiling the code.

 

You need to do fresh install of XP in VHD on real machine.

The drivers of Virtual Box do not work for real machine and will give BSOD 7B

 

How to prepare XP Setup Source ? - Prepare XP Setup ISO file with integrated DriverPacks

 

At least you definitely need to Integrate in your XP-ISO file the DriverPack MassStorage with TXT Mode Enabled, otherwise you can get easily BSOD 7B

 

More Info here: http://reboot.pro/to...n-vhd/?p=172481

 

Boot with Windows and use VHD_XP_Create as follows:

- Select USB 2.0 drive as Boot Drive and Create VHD on internal MBR NTFS drive selected as System Drive

- Boot from USB via F8 menu and select in  Grub4dos menu - Start -  TXT-mode XP Setup and after loading drivers select XPSRC1.vhd and Install XP

- ReBoot from USB via F8 menu and select in  Grub4dos menu - Continue GUI-mode XP Setup

- ReBoot from USB via F8 menu and select in  Grub4dos menu - Boot  Windows XP from Image
 
Boot normal with other Windows OS and then:
- Copy the XP VHD as file XPW1.vhd to your USB MBR NTFS Drive
- Use USB_XP_Fix with default settings to make the VHD compatible for booting XP from USB 2.0
- Boot from USB via F8 menu and select in  Grub4dos menu - XPW1.vhd - WinVBlock FILEDISK
 
You need equipment with MBR partitioning that can boot in BIOS mode and supports booting of XP
 
UEFI booting, GPT partitioning, USB 3.0 and modern hardware without drivers for XP will ALL FAIL !!!
