I wanted everyone to know. I created an installation USB key on an x64 system for an x86 install (with x86 DVD) It worked. I have one question...on the 1st reboot, it tried to run the setup all over again (because I set the bios to boot from USB) to get around this, I removed the USB key and let it reboot. It then went on with the install and I inserted the USB key. It finished fine. I don't think that's the correct way to do it.
In the BIOS I changed the boot priority to HD from CD/DVD
Also changed the HD priority from the HD to the USB key
Was this correct? Did I only need to change the BOOT priority not the HD priority?
Also am I free to format this USB drive back to FAT?
If I use it again for an install, do I just need to follow the ENTIRE tutorial again? Thanks.
And thanks for the wonderful tutorial Brink. It does shave about 5-10 min off an install.
