I am trying to find a way to develop a kiosk style machine running Windows XP.
The purpose is a shared machine that will have access to the internet and local applications.
I am trying to find a way to make this OS/Hard Disk READ ONLY - so that at the end of the session (when the machine is turned off or powered down) the changes are dumped and not written to the drive. During operation people can open files, edit attachments to email, etc. (the normal daily operations) but no changes are stored to the disk when turned off.
The way I would describe this is similar to either a Windows XPe on CD Rom, OR a VMware workstation that does not save the settings of each session.
If anyone has any ideas for this, I would welcome suggestions.
