stupid question

Tue Apr 29, 2014 9:19 am

Hi,

I use a PC with Bootit BM on an internal SATA 500 GB-disk. It works fine, copying a partition to the same disk and booting the OS (win xp) from the original or the copied partition. It also works, copying the original partition to a USB-disk (300 GB), copying it again to the SATA-disk (2nd copy). Then I am able to boot from the original partition an from the 2nd copy, both on the SATA-disk. But I can never boot from the USB-disk. I guess, I made a very stupid mistake.

Greetings

Achim

Windows won't boot and run properly from a USB drive unless changes are made. Run the TBOSDT USBBoot script on it and it should make it bootable.
