How to put longhorn image on a iPod?

Post by Leon »

Well, I haven't got any blank discs, Only an iPod, I know my system can boot off of it, but how would I put the bootsector from the iso onto my iPod? (4074)

Any suggestions are welcomed

if you can boot from it

copy the boot sensor files onto the ipod
run windows setup and copy the 2 folder that was created by setup on it

You must first enable iPod for Disk use.
Then, you must find one of those utilities that make USB flash bootable (forgot em, but google it, it's very easy to find), extract the files on the root of the iPod (WinRar or MagicIso do it nicely), and finally use the utility to make it bootable. This way you may use it.
I've done it with my 80 gig iPod.
Take into consideration too that if your computer doesn't support booting from a USB disk no matter what you do, it won't happen.
Good luck!

Must help.
There you may find tutorials, and plenty of utilities!

Should I put BartPE on it, and then run the setup exe from there?

How are you going to install it??
Will you boot directly from the image, or will you install it from Windows?
