i wanted to install windows xp on my external usb hdd, so i did the following:
insert win xp cd
setup copies files to usb hdd (works fine)
boot from usb
windows xp loading screen
bluescreen stop 0x0000007b
k after a day of googling i found out that this is the normal behavior of windows xp (windows 98 works fine). this is because the nt kernel loads the usb drivers too late.
so i need a modified kernel or another workaround.
then i found out that bartpe can boot from usb with help of using 2 files from the 2003 so1. setupldr.bin and ramdisk.sys. so i downloaded the sp1 and extracted those 2 files into my xp cd. after making a new image and burning i tried it again. the copying of the files went fine again, but then the first reboot: bluescreen stop 0x0000007b
plz help me
i don't want to have a pe cd or usb stick or somethink like that. i dont have a internal hdd so i must use the external. there must be a way to make a normal (minimal modified) windows xp boot on it
