I am working on an EeePC micro PC and it doesnt have a CD Rom drive. How to make USB boot disk for OEM XP Home Install?

I have a USB Stick and OEM Copy of XP Home on my PC. What programs do I use to make the usb boot able? Do I just copy the oem folder to USB Stick?

If you copy the contents of the XP home CD it should work fine (OS CDs typically don't include copy protection as that is built into the activation process).

Also the Eee PCs come with a recovery CD and if you need to start from scratch you can do the same with that CD as well.

Actually, the OEM copy is not going to be legal to be used as a standalone OS, as it is tied to the system it is currnently installed on....

Correct me if I am wrong all, but I just re read that after posting....

John6767 You are right OEM "Original Equipment Manufacturer". means that it is supplied only for the device it was install on.  stevef22 to be completely above board you will need to secure a full version of XP from somewhere.

All you need is WinToFlash at http://wintoflash.com/home/en/

This is by far the easiest way.
