Yes, but it is NOT SUPPORTED. Ask that same question on google to find out what people did to get XP to run from USB. It's not trivial and not supportable.
OK, I know I can't boot from a USB device. But, can I run XP from a USB device????
I have a HD that "died" last year. On it, I have some Sony Connect DRM protected music. I was able to save a copy of all of the music, but, I can't remember my account information to to reload it on another machine !!!!!!
I could just try putting the HD back into the desktop and try booting up from there, but it would be easier if I could just put it in an external HD case that I have.
If I can't run XP from the USB connection, would there be a way to just run the Sony Connect software fro the external drive??
Last option, is there a place in the registry of the original HD that I could find my account information??
Thanks a bunch !
