Really?

I have a complete USB Bootable version of Windows Vista PE. It works just fine.

They are just the files zipped on a flash drive... not executable or bootable; better off with open office anyway for text editing, spreadsheets, etc.

Can't say much about vista, but I know XP can't do it unless you heavily modify the disk.

Guess the boys in redmond finally upped their game. Every other OS has been booting off of USB for years.

In any case, doing anything off of a USB stick that isn't meant for a USB stick sucks.

I've had USB boots for 95,98,ME,XP and Vista, mostly for disk/file/password recovery. It is not the fastest way to run, but it does work in a pinch. In fact I'm using it right now (k-meleon) with pstart/bsexplorer. Portable apps are the future

Edit: NVM - working ok now.
