default Install Windows XP From USB Flash Drive Part-II

Post by Admin on Tue Aug 10, 2010 5:28 am

I previously wrote an article Install Windows XP from USB Flash/Pen Drive part-I.
This process allows you make a USB flash disk/drive bootable and
exactly the same as the XP installation CD. To make the whole process
you should have a PC/Computer/Laptop with CD/DVD Rom. Once you make
your USB drive ready to boot windows XP setup from it then you can
start Installing Windows XP from that USB Disk/drive in any computer.
Also read how to Install Any Software You need In Your USB Flash Drive With Mojopac.
I shall describe the process how to make the USB drive ready to
install XP in your computer step by step. At first you have to get a
USB flash drive/disk(at least 1 GB). Now download the archive
XP_FROM_USB.rar from the given link below:
Download link
The procedure

1. Extract the XP_FROM_USB.rar archive in a folder named Softslas(Say) in C: drive.
Now navigate to C:\Softslas\PeToUSB\ and double click on the peToUSB.exe

The appearing window will be like this
Set these:

  • select “USB Removable as Destination Drive”
  • select “Enable Disk Format”
  • select “Quick Format”
  • select “Enable LBA (FAT 16x)”
  • Put XP-Softslas (or whatever you want) in Drive Label :

Now click Start
Then you will get the message and click yes
Another message box will again appear and click Yes

After clicking on “Yes” the USB disk will be formatted.Wait for few seconds and then click on “Ok” and then chose “Close”.
3. Now open the windows Command prompt typing cmd in Start->Run
Now in Command Prompt window type
cd c:\softslas\bootsect and press “Enter”.
Now type the command
bootsect /nt52 I: and press “Enter”

Then again type “cd..” and press “Enter” and cd usb_prep8 and press “Enter”.

Now type usb_prep8 and press “Enter”.

4. Press any key to continue.
Now the command prompt window will look like this.

<blockquote>Prepares Windows XP LocalSource for Copy to USB-Drive:

2) Change Virtual TempDrive, currently [T:]

4) Make New Tempimage with XP LocalSource and Copy to USB-Drive
5) Use Existing Tempimage with XP LocalSource and Copy to USB-Drive

Q) Quit

Insert the XP installation CD in you CD/DVD ROM and in command prompt window type 1 and press “Enter”..
A “Browse For Folder” window will appear and here select the CD/DVD drive and then click OK.
Similarly for the choice field enter 2 and if there assigned the
letter “T” for your computer then change it otherwise do not alter it.
After typing 2 in the choice option it will prompt “Enter Available
Virtual Drive Letter”.
Here type a letter that is not any drive letter of your computer.
Let us say S is not a drive letter in your computer. So put S then press “Enter”.
Now it will get back to the Command prompt and then type 3 in where it
prompts for the choice. Then it will prompt “Please give Target
USB-Drive Letter e.g type U”.

Now put your USB drive letter and press “Enter”. Here my USB drive label is “I” so I put “I”.
Now input 4 and press Enter.It creats the new temporary image and makes a copy of it to the USB Flash Drive .
Please wait for a few seconds..
A warning message will appear like this:
Type Y and press “Enter”.
Please wait………..
After completing Format it will prompt “Press any key to continue” and to continue hit any key .
Please wait………..
It will again prompt “Press any key to continue” and obviously press any key to continue.
5.Now a message box will appear showing
“Copy TempDrive Files to USB-Drive in about 15 minutes = Yes OR STOP = End Program = No”

Click “Yes”.
Now after this a message box will appear showing “Would you like USB-stick to be preferred Boot Drive U……………….”
Click “Yes”.
“Would you like to un-mount the Virtual Drive ?”

Click “Yes”.
Now wait some time and press any key…………….
Press any key again to close usb_prep8.
Now your USB you can Install Windows XP from the USB drive.
6. Insert your USB drive in the USB port and Reboot your
computer.When starts the computer enter in the BIOS Setup and set the
first boot preference as USB Hard Disk.Now Save and Exit from the BIOS
Setup.Your computer will again restart and the following screen will

Now Chose The TXT Mode Setup.After completing the partition,formatting and copying file the computer will restart again.
Now chose the GUI Mode Setup Option.
Wait for completing your installation.
I think this will help you to install XP from USB flash disk/drive especially in those computer without CD/DVD ROM.
