Apparently as long as it took you to not read my whole post? See, what took three days was TRYING various tutorials and hitting the exact same brick wall, having gotten there from multiple points. Not finding them, which is as easy as finding amputees in Iraq. Besides, the point of this post is not tech support of my issue, but a feature request, since I can't find a list of them. Did "Feature Requests" give you an official place to mention such things and I over looked it? If so, I'll happily do what I can to remedy the situation. If not, I'd prefer that you offer either something constructive or nothing at all.
Since apparently everyone thinks nlite is absolutely perfect and has no suggestions for additional features ... as evidenced by the lack of a sticky topic containing the words "feature requests" I figured I'd start one. I'm sure someone will move this to the no doubt already well developed (yet completely hidden) thread. For Clarity: I'm not asking for tech support on my issue. I'm sure everyone would just point me to tutorials or Google or the bevy of other SOP answers ranging from well meaning to trollish. All of which I feel I've exhausted. But having given up after three solid days I have a fantasy in my mind of how I wish it had worked. And I wanted to share my vision. --- Feature I would like to see: At the end of the process, when it says, burn or create image, why not add "Flash Drive" or "External Hard Drive" to that list? --- I see 68 billion tutorials on how to accomplish install xp from usb generally, many of which mention nlite, and thousands of people claiming success, so clearly there is demand other than my own. I'm told it's flat out impossible to turn a bootable iso into a bootable USB stick. The only solution being a conversion process. The simplest of which calls itself winsetupfromUSB 0.1.1 (Official page? Author? where to go for updates if any? src?) But I simply can't make it work, invariably it bluescreens just after the initial loading phase of setup. So, I guess what I'm going to do is just be happy with cds, and invest in an external USB cdrom drive eventually. P.S. I LOVE nlite, the app is just insanely useful and very user friendly, especially considering what it accomplishes.
