USB Flash Drives are becoming the preferred means of data transport, replacing CDs and DVDs. They can be purchased in capacities up to 16GB now, and it won’t be long before we see a 32GB flash drive. USB flash drives are fast, small, and you can carry a couple in your pocket with no problem. Running an unattended install of Windows Vista from a USB Flash Drive can be faster and easier than a network or DVD install. Of course, for some environments, a network install or an optical media install is necessary, or more cost effective, but try out a USB install, you might decide they are the best way to install Windows.
