Install Windows XP from a USB Flash Drive with Easy2Boot

Maybe you don’t have a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM, or you don’t want to use one, or you are building a retro gaming PC and the onboard SATA controller is form VIA, and won’t boot from an optical SATA drive. Easy2Boot is free and lets you put your Windows XP ISO images onto a USB flash drive and install it from there. It also has a driver pack for storage controllers and is all-round a great tool.

  23. PhilsComputerLab When I first installed XP using this method, everything worked fine. But after the first time I restarted, the mouse and keyboard wouldn’t respond (nor would any other USB or PS/2 device) they work fine in BIOS and I can press F8 to go to safe mode, but they still just don’t want to work after XP loads and the desktop comes up. The cursor just sits in the center of the screen and won’t respond to mouse movements. The keyboard doesn’t do anything either. I’m running on a custom built desktop PC with a Gigabyte motherboard.

  24. Thanks

  25. For newbies, you need to copy your XP CD to an iso file. Just look up something like CD to iso maker. Plenty of free stuff that will work just be sure you backup your os before you install any software.
