Vista Install Part 1

So this is my journey so far with the Vista install:

  • Format a USB key as described in my earlier post
  • From a computer with a DVDROM copy the Vista media onto the root of the USB key
  • I used vlite ( to create a cut down vista image.
  • Boot and select USB as the boot option
  • Vista kicks off its install.

EDIT: Before you blow away your XP image make sure you copy the drivers folder and then copy it back t0 your USB key after you have installed Vista.
