Solved Booting windows from a flash

Specs: Windows XP pro, 1.994 GHz / 2549 MB
I succeeded in putting a ghost partition image that contains a full installation of windows XP on a USB flash memory. When trying to boot from that flash, Windows started to boot well but then it turned into booting from the hard drive and continued that way. Is there special arrangement that I need to make to boot fully from the flash?

You can make a dos usb bootable device or go with a bartsPE or UBCD4Win maybe instead.

XP running on flash can be done but MS never wanted you to do that. Web pages exist on how to do that.

Might be possible to use a flip bit on the flash to make it act like a non-removable drive. Never tried it.

I made a DOS bootable flash but DOS cant read NTFS partitions so it was no use. The UBCD4Win didnt work either. I will try BartPE.

I am not sure what you mean by "flip bit" on the flash.
