    I know another thread has been made already similar to this one, but at least Vista has been alive longer...

    I've been wanting to install Vista for a while... Been wondering if it is possible to install Vista onto a Thumb/Flash/USB Drive. No I don't mean extracting the files of an ISO then putting it onto the USB Drive. I mean like installing Vista to the USB Drive so it's just like having an OS with you everywhere.

    Anyway... If it's possible, guides will help ^^

    not possible and even if it was it would be too slow to be usable.
