Booting I am 90% certain will not work.
Installing - depends what you mean.. possibly.. (

Re: USB Flash Boot

Hi Phillip,

I have looked at this URL but it does not mention USB flash devices. What makes you think that it will not work.

By install I mean reinstalling the OS. ie use the flash stick to load os.

Richard,

Slight spin that may solve your problem. You can create a DOS disk that has support to access a USB device such as a flash memory storage device.

See link below which has details.

You might need to change the config.sys a bit.
