First take VHD image of your OS and save the same on NTFS drive. I did it with disk2vhd.exe of sysinternals software. On fat32drives you cannot save images above 4Gb. Check that your image is good enough to boot by using virtual box installation.Take large enough usb drive to hold your os and use RMPrepUSB with following settings
1.Drive: your USB drive
2.partition size= max
3.volume label : to identify drive
4.bootable options=xp/BartPe bootable NTLDR
5. file System=fat32/boot as hdd(c: 2ptns)
prepare the drive as per the above parameters test using Qemu of RMPrepusb.
if everything is ok, then select usb drive and use image tools-file to drive


Important Notice
  • Option do NOT select raw but file to drive option
  • Start from 0, 0 as sugested and let it copy to drive
  • The process took nearly 45 min to copy my 8gb OS
  • Test it with qemu and use it as bootable virtual HDD
  • Once you boot the PC from the USB VHD drive, it cannot be written to as it is a virtual drive but you can surf, logon and save to internal hdd of the computer as required
