Okay, so I found out that it's hard to put XP on a USB HDD.
See for example http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Q_20983648.html
But is it possible to have a configuration that would boot off a SATA disk and then load Windows from the USB HDD?
Our problem is that computer reboots AFTER showing the WinXP logo, so I'm guessing only putting the bootloader
on the SATA disk doesn't resolve the problem - correct?
Any thoughts on this, how can I build a configuration with identical SATA disks so that one is connected to SATA
and one to USB (with a USB-SATA case), and so that I can boot from which disk I want? WinXP on both disks.
Suggestions welcome. Thanks!
