Makink a USB pen bootabel

Hi there,
Is it possibel to make an USBpen bootebal, most pc here can boot from USB so if that can be done it would be very welcome to me.

If it is possibel I also like to access other files on the pen, I probebly need some sort of USB driver.

IF anyone can tell me what can be done and what can not be done, I like to hear it.

Tnx.

Re: Makink a USB pen bootabel

Tnx for the reply, i've read the artical, and some more on the internet, it should be possibel to boot, but not a full functional windows.
But I only need the system files (like copied in a sys command underDOS) and the acces to CD-rom. so it has to detect files on the USB-pen.

So actualy I need some cool software to make this.

Now I only hope that my Sony 256MB MIcrovault supports this.

I hope there is someone else out there that wanted it and got it working.

Hope to hear from you,

Hi:

I called Sony at 1-800 942-7669 and they said the MicroVault products are NOT bootable. Sorry!
