Hi all,

Whenever a new OS is released in beta/RTM, I've always had to burn an image file onto a DVD before installing the software on to a test machine. I don't have much of a problem continuing this way except that the two PCs that I usually download the beta software with either only has a cd writer or it doesn't have a media drive at all.

Want I'd like to do is to put the image file on to a USB device and have the new OS to install off of the USB device, but I have no idea how to put the installation files on to an External HDD/USB flash drive and have them bootable.

It'd also help if I can put the recovery DVD for my Asus eee box on to a USB device as this is the machine I don't have a media drive.

Can anyone help me on this please?

Thanks tdinc for the links.

Would I be able to put multiple OSes on to one USB HDD and be able to select them when I boot from USB?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
