Default Loading/Running Windows from bootable CD

sponsored links

 
Hi,
I am looking for a way to create a bootable CD that would enable me load and run Windows (any flavour) without accessing the harddisk in my PC.This would,for example allow me to run a different version of Windows than that installed on the HD.

I understand that this would entail the creation of a RAM Disk,as Windows needs write access to various files when it loads (which it obviously couldn't do if the files were loading from CD...).

Any thoughts on the practicality of creating such a CD would be most appreciated.

Thanks
Martyn W.

You can't do that with any normal version of Windows. You need to get [i]Embedded[/i] Windows NT or [i]Embedded[/i] Windows 2000

Let me guess, the next question will be ... "Where can I get a copy from ?"
