I've been using nLite to create custom XP x64 unattended installs. Does anyone have any suggestions on imaging a USB Flash drive with an x64 Unattended install copy. Has anyone done this.

This would be a greate nLite feature to create a USB flash install. It would be faster than installing from a CD.

Installing from USB is not so straightforward, how to do it has been found only recently (stilll experimental) and I doubt it will be much faster, however here is the thread where you can find tutorials on how to do it with XP i386, NOT x64, maybe you can use that as a base to develop a method for x64:

Thanks for the links. I've read about the x86 version guides for getting USB flash to boot XP but have not seen anything specific with x64. The WinPE and structure is different between x64 and x86 and does not crossover. If anyone else having experience with x64 would be helpful.

I'm not sure if this is even feasible. Thanks.
