Can I make a Live Win XP USB.
« on: January 19, 2018, 09:33 AM »
Hello folks i am trying to make a Live Winxp USB by a tool called "USBoot 2.14" and "WinSetup-1-0-beta7". Okay i have attached the files and from my experience you will not have much success by using the first tool.


The second tool comes pretty close as there are a bunch of tools ready to prepare your USB.
The tricky part is i have tried it and there are certain instruction you need to follow after the WinXP comes to an end when installing it on the USB.
Certain steps need to be followed but i couldn't access those steps as it was not available to me. Maybe the XP setup process may have erased those small programing details because after all the steps during boot process could possibly be erased.
As it is installing in the self, or the USB.
But i am too puzzled to explain.
What i want you to do is make a live bootable xp from the second tool.
I hope you have an extra XP image file at your disposal, please try to recreate a live XP USB and could you tell me how its done in actual way.
Or could you suggest me some other tools to make a LIVE XP USB ready to be deployed.

I really hope you have some success with the second tool and if u r then please
repeat those steps in this post. Again you could suggest some thing as i have found only two tools that could do this.

Hope it is understandable. I am eagerly awaiting your process and idea on this
tool.

Hoping to hear from you soon.
Happy New Year 2018 :D :D :D

P. S: Please try downloading those tools n please use tht same name while searching in Google.
The combined size was 9 mb. Thts big so please download urself n see the process.
Cheers  :Thmbsup:

BartPE...that used to be the tool to create a bootable Windows XP CD/DVD. Done that myself in a distant past.

Links:

http://www.instantfu...dows-xp-live-cd.html

Even a youtube video:  https://www.youtube..../watch?v=78gKzcuq-dw

There was an alternative tool, WinBuilder, that was supposed to be able to do the same. Never tried it myself, so ymmv.

That should get you underway.

I've used BartPE and WinBuilder, both are good, WinBuilder (main site, tutorials) being a little easier, IMHO.

There's also AOMEI PE Builder which will create any PE from XP -> 10 whilst also adding their Backupper and Partition Assistant utilities.

There was also another but I forget the name, (started with R, IIRC), it was a wrapper for BartPE and made adding utilities easier.

Also, a utility was available that could capture installed programs, (or as they they were installed), and create a package suitable for adding to WinPE environments, worked for both BartPE or WinBuilder, IIRC.

Have to look through my file archives to find these again.

Used to spend hours working on creating WinPE environments, these days I don't bother, easier to boot a Linux CD to run recovery programs or such.

EDIT: The other PE creator was called REATOGO which doesn't appear to exist any more, the plugin builder was called H7PluginBuilder which also doesn't exist.

Hello guys, thanks for replying.
#Shades #4wd : I was looking forward to only make a Live XP USB, not a PE.
You know live OS tends to be flexible in due time, you could use legacy software and still be able to run files and program's
with it. PE is still just pre-installed, it's still limited and its good until the Disc is in good condition.
Although its almost the same, for me it is still recovering files from a failed unbootable disc.
But the thought of having a "OS" in a USB is fascinating for me.

My DVD ROM needs fixing. Its broke and i have started collecting a bunch of USB.
I have Disc but they tend to weather away by time, because of dust n dirt.
But today or just now, i made a LIVE XP USB!.....check out the screenshot man.

Ironically, the tool that could do was the first tool i had mentioned in my post above, its very lite and surprisingly it did it.
USBoot 2.14 Download
You need to have a hardware that still runs WinXP PRO, which i had with me.
You should probably have a fresh install of WinXP PRO. A working bootable WinXP CD.
Its a three step process and could take sometime.
Also it require a net connection in order to get a Response Code which is a part of the whole installation process.
Kind a easy.
Here is a complete Tutorial:  MAKE A LIVE WINXP PRO
Youtube Video Tutorial : YOUTUBE VIDEO TUTORIAL

You could achieve the same thing from a Virtual Machine using VirtualBox or VMWare but it cannot complete the third step.
So if you do not want to mess with the process, use a old pc with a fresh WinXP PRO already installed.
You will not be disappointed. I downloaded WinBuilder but it didn't go beyond this error message like proxy setting....this and that.
But i am glad you guys took some time for my post. Donationcoder has really been lucky for me, keep it burning man.

Thank you, love you guys.  :D :D :D
