    Default How to boot from pen drive?

    hi friends, i would like to know how to boot from pen drive forr installing an OS.. i mean as per a bootable cd or dvd is there.. when we reboot.. we can boot the cd.. by pressing any key ... (when we get display message " press any key to boot from cd/dvd" ) is that same thing possible from pen drive?

    Win XP setup will not run properly from USB, however you can easily run Vista or Win 7 setup from USB using the procedure below

    Usually u have to set the USB to be bootable from BIOS.

    I generally use F8 which bring up a menu from which I can use which device to boot from ie HDD or CD or USB (I hav Intel Mobo) .

    Let's just say, it is so by "design". If all you have is a single partition , that is , your HDD has only C:\ drive and no other partition , then it can work. Still the process is tedious.

    it depends on your BOIS if it have that feature earlier BOIS don't have that features.... you must update your BOIS problem if your vendor have any latest version....
