    hey keith,
    seasons greetings,
    i have installed windows XP and also windows 7 using the flsh drive, but usually its either using Bootsect for making the flash bootable and the copying the windows installation.
    or using Grub4dos, then again copying the installation.
    both method r the same basically.
    is wintoflash the same?
