Re: Best method to install XP on new SSD - 04-11-2009, 03:26 AM
Do you have a spare internal CD or DVD drive from a desktop/tower/workstation laying around? You can get a $20 USB to IDE/SATA cable and use that if you want to go cheap. I did my XP and OS X installs using that and it was flawless.

i did an nlited XP Pro install from a sandisk micro cruzer 2 gig thumb drive using this guide. It went flawlessly and I was very happy BUT it does take forever. The transfer of the files from the USB to the SSD takes place over USB 1.0 connection so it will take a few hours. Get up and do some house cleaning
