Bootable, Live XP USB Install

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to get a Live XP install on a USB drive that I can plug in and boot to. I know it'll be a bit slow (and no this isn't for Z170). In googling, I've found that there are tons of methods so I was hoping that someone could share their experience and which method they used.


To calarify, I'm not looking to install XP from a USB drive, I'm looking to install XP on a USB drive.

I think it is easy as hell to just write an image of an os to a usb stick with acronis.

It sees it as a hdd so you just put in it an image of the os you have in your ssd and then the usb becomes bootable with os and everything... yes it is unstable and yes it is very sloooow.

Imho the right way for x58 high pci-e frew is either an external pci controller as mentioned or use the asmedia (or whatever secondary sata controller) your mb has.Allways on ide mode.
