Default Reinstall XP From USB Thumb?? - 04-02-2009, 07:45 PM

Hello All:

I was wondering if the need was to come up for me to have to re-format and redo XP on this system...I do not have the CD drive. Can I reinstall XP using a THUMB DRIVE?

If so, what is the best way to copy the XP disc to the THUMB DRIVE to make sure EVERY FILE is copied to that THUMB when it is time to install?

Use the SEARCH function in the FORUMS. All your questions are answered in the Mini 9 forums, including how to use a program lite nLite to make your install very small. How to make your USB bootable. etc.
