Make a Windows XP Bootable Flash Drive

Ever want to take Windows XP (or any version of Windows, really) with you wherever you go? Maybe you'd rather use XP than the OS installed on a public computer. Maybe you just want to prank your friends and watch as their computer boots into a 16 year old OS.

Whatever the case, today I'm going to show you how to create a bootable flash drive that will launch Windows XP in a virtual machine on (almost) any computer you plug it into.

Download Links:

sudo apt-get install virtualbox
vboxmanage startvm “Windows XP” --type GUI
cd "C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox"
vboxmanage clonehd [source file path] [destination path] --format RAW
