  1. Hey guys,

    Ok so I have various parts to build a tower except I have one problem - the cd drive doesn't work so I thought this would be a great time to test booting and installing Windows from a USB flash drive.

    I have a 2gb USB flash drive and will be using windows XP Pro

    I was wondering if there are any gd guides on techspot or possibly the net the have a step by step instructions for this. This is mostly for me to learn to I don't mind if things go a bit wrong

    Many thanks
    James :)
