Post Copy XP installation files to Usb and replace I386 file
WinToFlash forum,
Windows XP Home Edition version 2002 SP3

I have a Windows XP SP3 cd and I want to make a USB
flash drive that will boot and install Windows.

I used nLite to create a I386 file that contains all current
MS updates.

Now I plan to use WinToFlash to copy my Windows XP CD
to my flash drive and then replace the I386 folder on
the flash drive with the one created by nLite.

Will this work?

Post Re: Copy XP installation files to Usb and replace I386 file
WinToFlash forum,

I got this to work but had to use WinSetupFromUSB.

Steps:
1. Copy everything from the Windows CD to a file.
2. Integrate all MS updates into the I386 folder in that file.
3. Construct a bootable and installable USB flash drive
containing an updated version of Windows.

1. First copy all the files from the Windows CD to a
file in your HD. I named it winxp. Remove the
Windows CD, it's no longer needed. Note the size
of the I386 folder in winxp for reference later.

2. Next download and extract UDC-03.13.12.zip from
http://xdot.tk/updates.html and double click on the
batch file.

This will download all the MS Hotfix, Add-ons and Update
Packs to a folder called UDC-03.13.12.
Note: The folder name will reflect the current date.

Next download and installed nLite. When you run nLite
it will first ask for the location of the Windows
installation. In my case it's c:\winxp. Click next
and nLite will display information about your windows
installation CD. Click next and decide if you want to
"import other or load previous settings". I skiped this
step. Click next to get the "Task Selection" menu. Click
on "Hot Fixes, Add-ons and Update Packs" and click next.

At the Hotfix, Add-ons and Update Packs menu click on
insert and then browse to and open the UDC-03.13.12(name
will change depending on the date you downloaded). This
folder should be full of windows update files. I found
2 files in this folder I had to delete:

WindowsXP-WindowsMedia-KB2378111-x86-ENU.exe
and Copy of Adobe.Flash.Player-v11.1.102.63.cab.

Also delete the Obselete folder if it's present.

Now click on the first file name and hold down the shift
key, navigate to and click on last file name and let up
on the shift key. This should highlight all the files in
this folder. Click Open. All the file names should now
be in the nLite window. Click next and answer yes to
"Do you want to start the process". On my system this took
a long, long time. When it's done note the size of the
I386 folder in winxp. It should be many MB larger since
all the updtates are now integrated into it.

3. Now download and unzip WinSetupFromUSB 1.0 beta7. This is
a .7Z file so you may need to download some decompression
application. I used WinZip.

Insert a flash drive that's at least a couple of GB. Mine
was 4GB. Start WinSetupFormUSB and follow the directions here:

Before clicking on the "GO" button I had to turn off my
AV(avast) or I got an error message.

There are probably other ways to do this but this worked
for me.

Hope this helps someone.
