Just to add one thing...

I use 8 Gb flash drive in order to use it as ready boost. Im not sure if this will help preformance but it doesnt do anything bad...
Only trouble is when I reboot the PC... I need manually to make USB dedicated to ReadyBoost feature.

is there a way to make this automatic on each reboot/shuting down?

I understand your dilemma It's a regular occurrence in business computing, the users need to be able to work faster but this, although possible, is only possible at a cost. the only thing you can do is a fiscal analysis of the costings of the various options ...

The cost of lost production if the status quo is maintained Vs the upgrade to 64Bit and the improvements that result - and the equation contains too many subjective variables

Have not done any readyboost for a while - there used to be a right click option to dedicate the use of any particular USB stick to readyboost ETC but this may have been removed when the USB boot options were changed a few years ago to improve the security

Yes there is option when you right-click on the flash drive but issue is that user need to do this each time he reboots or shuts down a PC.

It would appear that the removal of the possibility to to autoboot from a USB stick to prevent virus attacks has also removed the retention of other boot options

although the options are still listed by Microsoft

So in translation answer is NO, it cant be automated.

User needs to dedicate USB flash drive each time system boots...

well that sucks

I saw the link, yes, but it only says how to dedicate USB flash to a ReadyBoost.
It doesnt say how to make it permanent or Im missing something?
