    Posting the same thing 5 times is not a good way to attract attention around here!

    As long as it wasn't intentional!
    I dont know too much about installing windows on a cf card but here goes:
    It seems windows has a problem with the page file being on the cf card, this may be because the cf card has a limited number of read/write cycles. But then windows should just treat it as any normal drive and just use it untill it eventually dies from to many reads/writes.

    It's a mystery to me!

    I was waiting till I had some proof of aliens (and of course the government) preventing him from loading XP on the CF Card

    You can install windows onto the drive, but you must get a utility from the card maker to switch it to fixed disk mode so that windows will not freak out on it. The other thing your going to need to do is install EWF (Enhanced Write Filter) or your cards are going to be dead within a few days.

    If you can find it your much better of going with Windows XP embedded, i've got it running on a 1gb flash card with no problems at all.
