Sleep well. Nice work. It's been a big day.

Don't worry if you have made some Hide mistakes. They are fixable.

Great. I would have made dozens when I first started. So you are way ahead of me.

naw... you got me beat by a million miles...

i just have to make myself slow down and read every word, and quit jumping over stuff... like i did with NightOwl's post some pages back... and i got frustrated cuz i couldn't figure out how to show the system files in w7...

you know anything about booting an OS from a thumb drive??

i have that option in my bios... and am wondering if i could get that figured out... then i'd put the 2nd hdd caddy in the machine while installing xp... and see what happens at the end... cuz it sure is easier to install a dvdrom drive after install than this 2nd hdd...

i've got the app FlashBoot... and plenty of thumb drives that will hold the xp OS...

wanna get into that?? on another thread of course...
don't wanna upset NightOwl any more Smiley

Win7 and Win8. Easy.

WinXP. Difficult, but TeraByte Unlimited has a script. usbboot.tbs.

well, i can already see that 2nd drive in w7... so not worried about that OS...

do you know anything about FlashBoot... supposed to be able to do lots of stuff with it... like putting a thumb drive into the computer and making it believe that it is a floppy drive running from A:\...

anyway, the url is www.prime-expert.com/flashboot/....
if you want to download the manual and take a look at it... i'd really like to learn since i bought it...

and then i gotta find out which usb slot is to be used for boot up... and how the bios needs to be configured...

i can't believe it... i get one problem fixed... and right away i want another one Wink

ok... am starting to slow down, finally... i'll finish the logicals, then get to beddy bye...

I played with booting OS from flash drives. OK if you have plenty of time as the OS runs SLOWLY. It's faster if the OS is on a USB HD but nowhere near as fast as from an OS on an internal HD.

My advice is to forget OS on USB. You have 6 OS. Why do you need a slow number seven OS?

Can you see your second HD drive letter from WinXP? If not, can you see the partition without a drive letter in Disk Management? If so, give it a drive letter.

no, you misunderstood my misunderstanding words... Smiley

I want to *install* xp pro *from* a flash drive... not run the OS from one...

If i can get that to work, then i can put the 2nd hdd caddy in while installing... and maybe maybe it would be working in xp at the end of the install... cuz it sure is easier to install a dvdrom drive after install than this 2nd hdd caddy....

see?? read that a couple times over... i want to *install* the OS from the flash drive...

my optiplex has only one module bay... if it had two of them, then i could put the 2nd hdd caddy in one while installing xp... but having only one, it is needed for the CD installation...

that's why I'd like to see if i could get this 'plex to take a usb install stick...

alright... the logicals are done... off to dreamland...
