I found some articles regarding booting xp from USB and many users have reported success. yesterday, i made the windows 98 bootable USB drive using famous HP utility. After plugging in the usb drive and booting, the command prompt appears ( c:\).Then i try to install xp from USB drive ( xp dump copied on it) and the blue xp set up screen appears. But after few steps it says, that u need smart drive to proceed. Now i dont what it meant by smart drive.
I am stuck at that.
