Sorry that I've been missing for a long time because I don't have internet access since last 2 months ago.
Also I think the C:\ is not because copying files to ram, since I found the usage of memory is only 400K.
But I can save files to C:\, could someone tell me why ??

for the information about EWF.
So I got some time yesterday and I tried it out, it worked perfectly, and I was able to test it on two physical machines.
My P4 2.6Ghz with 768Mb of RAM, it took about 5 minutes to boot, and be at a place that Windows was responsive.
My Core2 Quad 3.0Ghz with 4GB of RAM took...about 5 minutes. I looked at the task manager and it was only using one of the cores, as I should have known, and only 3GB of the RAM (since it is not x64).
Still I'm very happy and the tutorial is laid out nicely, do you mind if I post it in another forum? Not CD forum but they might want this too.
And I don't know much about USB drives and booting, but do you think it could be tweaked to boot this? Thanks.
It uses all CPU core on my Core 2 Quad, to enable this:
Try using 2 processors in VMware while installing Windows
Update the "Computer" driver in device manager to "APCI Multiprocessor PC".
About the USB Booting, that is theoretically possible, you may integrate the WinXP USB Boot tutorial around the web with ETBoot, but I can't tell that 100% work.
