windows XP SP3 installed to USB usboot with NIC and WIFI driverpacks
*** THIS IS NOT BART,ERD OR UBCD4WIN ETC THIS IS A REAL FULL XP PRO SP3 INSTALLED AND BOOTING FROM USB DRIVE ***


This is working and tested USB boot image using partimage

* get a 4gig or higher usb drive
* download RMPrepUSB and format fat32 with boot
* make sure you can boot from the USB device
* extract the zip using 7-zip.org etc
* use partimage to dump the ~2 gig image to the usb drive etc
* http://www.sysresccd.org/Screenshots for partimage if you do not have it also on Backtrack or any number of live linux distros



this is how I did it thank usboot.org
* the host mashine MUST have NFTS partiton on it for this to work it uses drive shadowning etc to clone the C:
* made sure the USB drive was bootable
* formated the USB drive FAT32 not on VMware but on the host mashine
* did base install of my windows XP with driverpacks on a VM
* extract the NIC and WIFI drivers from driverpacks.net
* ran phase 1-3 ok on the VM

* you can even put this on cell phone and boot windows from minisd etc ..
* the image can be pushed and booted in under 4min on a USB or HDD for a quick hack
