In a long time I'm looking for a solution that works succeed to run full xp from usb....
i secseded to make multiBOOT usb with many tools (xp,2003,win7 setups, erd 2005, erd 6.5 for win7, bartpe, full win7 ,winxpe, win7pe, all acronis apps, ubuntu, kubuntu, knoppix, ubcd, heiron cd, many more tools and antivirus..............)
i realy need 1 more think to make it perfect - full xp .
i tray many turtuils but i canot make it work,
the only work solushen is to modifey my xp cd and install on my usb
Ngine.de), but then its work only on the first pc, on difrent hardware i get blue sceeen (even if i set ide to standard and computer to advansed acpi....)
Six months ago I've tried your "IMG_XP" now I gave it another chance But I was disappointed again
i use xp pro sp3 with full driver pack Integrated
(Otherwise i can not control computer if keyboard and mouse connected to usb)
I disabled System Restore,page file,Hibernate And many other unwanted components
i boots from win7-usb-hd and make my XPRAM_1.img
my image size is 1.34gb ntfs compressed (2.1gb uncompressed )
its boot fine from ram But not every computer can afford to load large files like this (Although not yet installed any software.....i want to install at last 1 more gb of software so Load from memory is not so useful) Even if you tell me to use only portable software and put them outside the img , steel my windows takes 1.34gb and many pc's load to ram very slow file like this....(If any)
because my image is full driver integrate then no need to manually install any driver when i boot different pc from ram. because of this i dont use "update image" tool - Am I right?
i also changed all ide & usb drivers to standard in device manager and computer to "advanced....."
so i trays "restore to usb" but than its work only in the first pc ... on other pc's i get blue screen
I also tried to run the image directly from usb without "--ram" - but i get blue screen
find --set-root --ignore-floppies /XPRAM_1.img
map /XPRAM_1.img (hd0)
I read in the forum that you can use driver name WinVBlock or ewf so you can boot directly from the usb, But I have no idea how to do it
Someone knows how to run the image directly? Or perhaps what I missed with "restore to usb" To finally i get full xp work on every pc???
thanks for your work
