I think he meant installing win ON an USB not FROM

I think I read it somewhere here on mintywhite, but sadly I can't find it right now.

thanks a lot bugsy for the fast reply ! :D

but ... i guess i failed to make u understand. like we install w7 or wXP on a pc's hard drive, the same way wud it b possible to install a w7 or XP ON a pen drive? the link u gave tells me how to boot n install a w7 from a pen drive but not ON the pen drive.

i was thinking of installing a wXP ON my pen drive. if i do so i can install a few softwares there n anytime if i need i can connect the pen drive n run wXP instead of w7. n again if the work is done i will remove the pen drive n boot the pc from hard drive :D

have i made it clear ? :)

You cannot boot Windows from an external hard drive. If attempted, Windows will BSOD.

There may be some workarounds to this (I'm pretty sure i've seen one) but know they're not supported.

There are plenty of OS's specifically made for USB thumbdrives. XP would probably run like treacle on a USB thumbdrive anyways.
