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?
I tried to change in BIOS setting.. changing boot configuration from cd drive to usb .. but it dint worked.. is there any possible way for it?

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.

hi guys..i wanna install now xp on my pc... i have already win 7. cant i simply run the set up from hard drive?? i want to keep win 7. i wanna install xp in seperate partition so tht i can have dual boot.. but when i run the setup.. installation tab is not highlighter.. what should i do?? i m not able to figure out tht stuff of booting from pen drive...
i m still wondering.. i mean i use to install win 7 just by running the set up over existing os.. if i dont wanna format the hdd or repartition.. but this xp is not getting done..
