The following instructions will create a fast booting Windows XP
Emergency Boot Loader on a USB Flash Drive (UFD). It will be useful
when you cannot boot into Windows normally. Everything needed is
included in this package.


1. Insert your USB Flash Drive (UFD).

2. Run "hpusbfw.exe" - HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool 2.0.6.0
(The newer version of the HP Tool, 2.1.8.0, will not work)

- Choose your UFD under "Device"
- For "File system" choose "FAT"
- Enter a name under "Volume label" (Maximum 11 characters)
- Leave un-checked "Quick Format" and "Create a DOS startup disk"
- Click "Start"

3. Copy these three files, from the root of the Windows drive (C:\),
to the UFD:

Boot.ini
NTLDR
Ntdetect.com

(Or you can use the files in the sub-folder, "Files")

4. Open the UFD in Explorer then open "boot.ini" with Notepad.
Increase the rdisk() value by one, because when you boot from
a UFD it will be recognized as the first disk (0) making the
Windows disk number two (1). "timeout=-1" means that there is
no countdown. You should use your existing copy of boot.ini
because it is already setup for your computer, just increase
rdisk() by one.

Example boot.ini (Yours will be different)

Before:

[boot loader]
timeout=-1
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Emergency Boot Loader" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptOut
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Safe Mode" /safeboot:minimal /sos

After:

[boot loader]
timeout=-1
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(2)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Emergency Boot Loader" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptOut
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Safe Mode" /safeboot:minimal /sos
