XP Boot USB Stick

Most of the following taken from : http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/151992-install-xp-from-usb-without-extra-tools/, just modified to include syslinux support.

Let me know if there are any omissions; it an XP installer bluescreens on boot for me so I can’t actually test.

  1. Obtain an XP iso file
  2. Format drive with one FAT parition, marked bootable.
  3. Edit /mnt/syslinux.cfg:
  4. Boot from the USB stick
