    Now that USB drives have come down in price, I'm thinking of getting a 4GB
    drive and transferring my current XP Pro folder to it and setting it to boot
    from. I'm currently running a NF7-S v2 with the last 2.7 BIOS so it should
    boot from USB.

    Has anybody else done this on their NF7-S v2 or any other mobo ? Is it
    instantaneous boot ? (As the USB drive is electrical, rather than mechanical
    like traditional HDD). Any pros and cons I should consider ?

    Thanks.

  2. No NT based O/S will boot from a removable drive.
    Just can't be done.
