And came up short.
Remember that Windows will not boot or run from USB without a boatload of changes (see google) and then it will fail because it's a clone of the internal drive. (Many more boatloads of changes to fix that!)
The ONLY external bootable HDDs I know of that don't require all this are connected with SATA or SCSI. And even then Windows XP fails to boot and run without boatloads of changes.
Supply a good link to the P5Q's manual so I can see if there is some USB boot option.
WinXP Pro SP3 ASUS P5Q On my machine, F5 is the Safe Mode menu, F8 brings up a simple boot menu with option for floppy, CD & HD.I have a removable HD drive/tray with a BOOTABLE clone HD of my primary HD, so I have 2 HDs.However, F8 only shows the primary.Does anyone know how to make F8 show an option to boot off my clone HD?
