Hi linus,

I tried what you told me today and unfortunately it didn't worked out. At the boot menu when I tried to load Hiren it either said that the current file didn't exist or that the file wasnt supported and couldnt boot. So I am guessing its kind of impossible to boot from Hiren ISO on a HDD...but since we can do it from a USB flashdrive it should work on HHD no?

I might give up on this haha and keep using CD's but I am not sure yet.

If you have any other solutions please let me know !

Yeah I never tried to boot mini xp off a USB key but at least I should be able to boot the other utilities...anyway I guess I will give up on this project its kinda of fucked up the way the iso works for Hiren.
