Can I use LiveXP to build a [arghh ... true/ordinary/usual/regular] XP system on a USB, to which I can install new programs while the system is running from USB?


Just dreaming out loud, but my ideal system USB would ...

install fast linux-like drivers (esp for video!)

for some reason slow clunky low-res video just seems too "dos" for me

if video and system response is clunky I'd rather rip open the box, and stick in a dedicated "Sata-for-PE" disk and boot from it


basic hardware testing tools ...

EaseUS PM 9 ...

Ghisler's TC, with 7z, WinRar, other utils ...

NotePad++ ...

Summatra/Foxit ...

XnView/Irfanview ...

and lastly and probably a hard one for backup/restore

Terabyte U


somehow, linux has figured out how to build drivers for a fast response workspace -- I tried WinPE and BartPE a few years ago, but the video was ... just too low res, clunky and slow ... the setup flies were tricky

No. :(


The LiveXP project (notwithstanding the name) does not produce a XP, but rather a PE 1.x.


But you can have a "full" XP on USB alright :).


Manual (historical) way:



Fully automated way:




Another couple more recent projects (probably the ones you want to play with) largely automated and customizable:
