    i want to be able to take my harddrive and just basically exactly copy it to the CF card so it boots really fast. The original HD will be reformatted, but i will boot and run of the CF card. What do i need to do once i have everything installed on teh HD plus BOotvis, Minlogn, and EWF? How do i copy that exact HD

    Understand that you're not going to get much of a performance increase (if any at all) by boothing from a flash drive.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Maybe not speed, but depending on where you live, in cold weather, you will at least boot!

    Neither, as far as I know. Perhaps some of the CF experts could weigh in on this.

    A 10,000rpm hard drive.
    However, they suck lots of power, so aren't a good choice for a vehicle installation.

    Very, very true.
    However, that has nothing to do with what the OP is asking about.

    so really the CF card is not going to give me a faster boot time. I need a 10,000 RPM HD? Im not sure what to think? I was told originally that a CF card will give me a faster boot time.. But now im not so sure.....,
