Hi

Try the following site: http://www.bootdisk.com/pendrive.htm

In theory once you have a booting USB, then you can overlay your CD contents into the right place.

In the free Microsoft WAIK, there is a walkthrough of this also, which boots into WinPE, to give you a 32 bit environment.

Cheers

The WAIK (Windows Automated Installation Kit) is a huge download at 1.3GB, but it's designed for full OS deployment. However everything you need is in there.

If you install the WAIK and open up the help chm and look for "Walkthrough: Create a Bootable Windows PE RAM Disk on UFD". That'll give you what you want. Don't be too put off by the size of it (1.3GB), you're probably not going to use most of it for what you need. But it's a tried and tested method.

Open up the Windows Automated Installation Kit User's Guide and look for the "Walkthrough: Create a Bootable Windows PE RAM Disk on UFD" section. It's all detailed there how to do it step by step.

You need to install the contents of the ISO onto your machine.

If you don't already have it something like PowerISO will allow you to open up ISO files, or mount them to virtual CD drives. Either that or you can burn the ISO to a DVD, via Nero or something like that.

Sorry should have mentioned that.
