Howto Install Windows XP On a USB Flash Or Pen Drive

by admin on July 26, 2006 · 193 comments

in Tips, Troubleshooting, Windows XP

You can install Windows XP on a USB pen so that you can troubleshoot problem or take your office with you. From the article:

All it takes is a minor error in the Windows Registry or a virus infection, and your operating system can become unbootable. But with a properly configured USB flash drive on hand, you'll always have a compatible replacement no further away than your pocket or keychain. In addition, the flash drive can also provide a secure browser and virus scanner, and lets you take your favorite DVD burning and Office software with you wherever you may go

All that's needed is a bootable USB Flash drive with at least 256 MB of storage capacity and a Windows Setup CD. Using the program Bart PE Builder (Freeware), you can install Windows XP on the flash drive, along with other software as needed (and as available space permits)...

You can do the same thing with Linux and USB pen drive.

4-copy u’r XP CD to u’r pendrive..(it should not be in any folder it should be pasted out only).
5-set u’r bios boot priority as u’r pendrive..(during this setting pendrive should be plugged).
6-restart u’r computer.

Dear sunil,and all other users, XP or Vista can’t be installed on pen drive because XP doesn’t allows to install in pen drive.But it can be installed from pen drive to Hard disk.Operating system can’t be installed to removable device.So don’t expect for solution.As a soultion there are boot cd’s,which completely boot xp with all features of XP.But it run from Ram.

110 Satya October 1, 2009 at 1:08 pm

Well to start with, the thought of installing Windows to a pen drive ( like Linux in pendirve) is lingering in mind from 2 – 3 years. I had given a try following the instructions above. To start with i have tried installing to a ReWritable CD. I have unplugged any hard disks i have to do it, though this is not required.
Result : The installation is good but the disappointment is that it not exactly Windows, its Windows files used with a shell of Bart PE, The desktop is different, Start menu is different, seeing all these i didn’t go ahead and installed and required drivers / software. Thus it ended with disappointment.
I have tried directly by selecting to install in PenDrive but it fails….. I have tried with some NTLDR hacking and some things no positive results as of now but still will keep trying …

Ubuntu installation in Pendrive is a piece of cake.
:) have a long week end will try and update.

Let’s begin the guide without wasting time. Just make sure that you have a pen drive with 4GB + capacity if you are making a bootable USB flash drive.
Requirements to create bootable Windows USB:
# Windows 7 or Vista ISO
# Pen drive with 4GB+ (2 GB is sufficient for XP)
# 15 Minutes of free time
Procedure:
1. Insert your USB flash/pen drive to your system and backup all the data from the USB as your USB drive will be formatted during the process.
2. Now download WinToFlash tool (free) from here.

3. Run the tool, and browse to your Windows 7, Vista, or XP DVD files (make sure that your USB drive letter is correct).

4. Click Create button to begin the bootable USB process. Wait for few minutes to see the bootable USB.
5. That’s all!

I do not have a hard disc in my PC. CD-ROM is working and I have Win XP SP2 installation CD. I want to utilize my 4 GB pend drive as hard disk. Can I install win XP SP2 in my pen drive? Whether my system will boot properly. My BIOS shows that it can boot through USB-HDD. Plz suggest.

NO SIR, IT WON’T WORK! I TOO HAVE ALREADY FACED THIS PROBLEM 7 I EXPERIMENTED WITH THIS ISSUE. IT’S A WASTE OF TIME. SOMETIME THAT OS MAY INSTALL BUT IT DOESN’T WORK….
BETTER BUY A NEW HDD OR TRY TO MAKE USE OF ANY OLD USED HDD. YOU CAN BUY SOME USED HDD IN ONLINE SHOPPING SITE LIKE “ebay” OR I THINK YOU CAN INSTALL IN A EXTERNAL HARD DISC TOO! I HAVEN’T EXPERIMENTED WITH EXTERNAL HDD, BUT THERE ARE MORE CHANCES FOR THAT…
