so have a fresh formatted drive and install XPe to disk then I get the 3 files I need to modify a different nlited XP install? When i try to run disk one in a normal OEM XP it says wrong OS version. Im kinda confused here. If I install XPe should'nt I just use that? If I am going to do the whole install just to get 3 files I was hoping one of you guys that did it already could share. If not, or if you think I should do the install of XPe to learn more about what Im trying do, than thats cool too. Just trying to clear some things up before I try anything. My goal is to install XP beast edition onto a CF then apply the EWF to it.
Seems no one else has tried the EWF with a standard USB drive either.
on another note ive been reading all morning on some 98micro embedded installs and you can get the OS down to like 15mb. I'm going to play around with that a bit too.
