Subject Re: XP wiping out boot record on E2B flash drive

I have given up on this for now. I have been at this for 12 hours. I can not get the second stage of XP to start. In order to get the first stage to successfully run. I would wait until the XP files were copied to RAM disk. then before the XP install started, pull the USB drive to prevent XP from overwriting the boot record.
the first stage install would run successfully and reboot. After the 2nd stage completed its copy it was suppose to boot off the hard disk, and this would not happen. I could not get the second stage of XP to work properly. I am going to use old school, stream line a set of drivers and do it this way. I will continue to monitor this thread for possible solutions.
