Stead Posted June 25, 2008 Share Posted June 25, 2008 I'm sure this is the wrong place to post this (i'm sure a normal vista wouldn't fit onto a small cf tho so i'm asking here!)...however I was just wondering, can vista be installed to removable media?iv'e got around it in xp by removing the drivers for removale disks and replacing them with the hitachi driver, and managed to get xp to install on a nice speedy cf, significanlty boosting the speed of an older laptop before i shell out and buy a 16gb cf, will it install onto it?i've tried searching the net but found nothing that actually says if it will or not, i know some cf's are seen as fixed disk and some as removable, but the one i want to use shows up as removable, (the ones that can work as a fixed disk, ironically seem to be way to slow to be practical)please don't tell me this is a silly idea because cf will fail after a day as windows writes to disk for a hobby, i've got a machine thats running xp, and has been for well over a year, and doesn't seem to be randomly failing even tho its running off a cf card...(don't mean to be rude, but everyforum i've asked quetions like this, i get told i'll goto computer hell for killing cf cards, and all sorts of things by people who have never tried it themselves who always know everything) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
