    I never used a stick I always put the .iso into a folder on the HDD. Then it is easy to navigate to it with "Browse". It may be possible from the USB stick, but then you have to first enable the USB (you do that when nothing is running in the vBox).

    I managed to create the XP ISO on a CD then used "USB_Multiboot_10" to install it on a 2GB Usb stick.

    Now in V.Box's I can find the stick XP's Setup.exe file which opens the usual XP installation blue menu but when I click on"install XP" nothing happens, just stays there staring at me.

    No where in the V.Box help file can I find how to install XP.

    Any assistance will be appreciated.

    Can you make an ISO from your CD and then mount it and install from that?

    Thanks in advance,
