if you are planning on booting from this drive and installing xp or vista, it will not work. Xp/vista both reinitalize the USB port during boot up, so at first it would work..then you'd get the blue screen (BSOD) because it couldnt/disconnected from the drive. if you google the issue, you may find some toolz that let you accomplish this another way, but in a general sense you cannot.
