Hello,

I am in need of advice on how to do this. I need to reformat a laptop or a notebook for a friend. I won't explain too much but I am left with the option of formatting using a Flash Drive. Although I have formatted lots of drives before, I have never done one via Flash Drive.

I Googled around and found a YouTube video showing how easy this is. The video showed a program called WinToFlash. I need info if this is effective and will there be any side effects?

If this program isn't as reliable as formatting with my CD installation of Windows, can I get any suggestions how?

Personally I have never used this program. But I have installed Windows and Linux Operating systems many times with USB Flash drives. And they are basically the same thing if not faster and more efficient. I might be able to help you if you can tell me what version of Windows you are planning to install?

I'm installing XP. But I wouldn't mind learning how to do it with Win7 too.
