im using 4 gb Flash Drive so i wil format it using HP USB Disk Format Tool
Make sure that your USB drive is in the "Destination Drive"at the top.
You must also name the usb drive label (it will probably already be named, that is fine).
If you follow the settings that I have above in the picture you should be good to go.
Answer yes to the question
When it finishes click the "Close" button and you will be taken to this window:
- Type in "1" then press "enter" and choose the place where WinXP is (probably your CD drive)
- Type in "2" then press "enter" and choose the place where your flash drive is located.
- Type in "3" and press "enter" and the XP files will be copied to the usb drive. Answer yes to any questions that follow.
While the files are being written to the usb drive eventually one screen will pop up asking you to choose:
*A. Unattended Install - UserName = YourName
in winnt.sif file - unattendswitch="Yes" - UserName is used Automatically
useraccounts.cmd with UserName is created in $OEM$ Folder copied to USB-drive
(Selecting Unattended Install in the Editor instead of Cancel will enable you to skip the Welcome Screens by filling in the information right now.)
*B. Semi-Unattended Install - UserName = None
in winnt.sif file - unattendswitch="No" - UserNames are given Manually at Windows Welcome Screens
useraccounts.cmd is Renamed to Inactive txt file in $OEM$ Folder copied to USB-drive
*C. Cancel - In all cases Selecting Cancel keeps given Settings for winnt.sif file and $OEM$ folder Unchanged
If you'd just rather fill in the information during the actual install of WinXP on your PC it's the same exact thing as choosing Unattended Install, Unattended Install just allows you to fill in the information now instead of later.
