| Hi, I've recently tried out a distribution of linux called puppy or dingo 4.0 and I'm really impressed at how the 87mb OS boots from the CD and loads itself on to the RAM. and once you shut down you can burn your preferences a cdr, or copy to usb drive, and of course your hard drive. |
Now this got me thinking, Can I achieve this type of configuration with Windows XP?
I want windows XP to boot from the CD or DVD, copy itself and all of the applications I would need on to the RAM. I think I could achieve this with my 2GB RAM...I might consider adding more if it is required.
The reason I am trying to have a ram based system is because I am an audio engineer, and I am trying to eliminate the excess noise from my PC and also I want the fast disk read/write access for sound recording. I do not require anything else aside from Cubase and my sound, video and any other required drivers, I don't even require the windows GUI, it would be great if my computer just loaded cubase and that's it. I would not be using this machine for internet access or anything else other than sound recording/editing.
Any ideas? How can I configure windows xp to boot from a CD and then once loaded it is running of the RAM?
Thanks + Cheers!
