Hi All,

I am wondering if it is possible to install Windows XP/Vista/Windows7 on USB stick then would it be possible to use that USB stick on any computer machine and get start working on that OS?

I don't know how to install OS on USB stick and then how to use it on other machine also?

Please guide me how to do it.

Thanks and Regards

Cannot happen, IMO.

Anything dependent on USB...needs to have the USB drivers installed/working on that system...so what advantage would that be on a system that cannot boot?

You can (allegedly) install XP from a USB drive, but that's not Microsoft talking: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=c...mp;oq=&aqi=
