  • Booting XP is not something that is supported by Microsoft and I doubt you will find many people in this froum that have ever tried it.

    You will probably find answers by searching the internet for information on booting XP from a USB flash drive.

  • Drivers are either installed during install setup or after the install setup is completed.  Drivers can be supplied by a floppy disk if they are not included in the install package.  If they are in the install package, they will be installed after the hardware is detected.

  • And if i want to have a "fix-install" of maybe a video driver, is this possible? If the PC changes you have to reboot first before you can use it.

    e. g. xp on a flash drive > new host > detects > have to restart >>>> BUT if you have your drive write protected, you don't want to disable the lock every time.

  • It would help if you were more specific about what you want to do.  As posted you are not making a lot of sense.

    Video drivers are installed after the system install.  If a new video driver comes out, you do a driver update which installs the new driver in place of the old driver.

  • Okayokay,

    I've got a portable windows xp installation (not bart pe) and my flash drive is write protected.
    When I start Windows on another pc, then other drivers will be detected and will be active after reboot.

    Now, is it possible that these drivers are detected and load preboot (or similar), so that the driver are ready to use after first boot?

    Thanks, and excuse me for misunderstanding.
