    I assume you mean 'wouldn't'.

    No, I am not really worried but if you get a new PC you want it to be as fast as possible. After all, it has to be functional for the next 3-4 years.

    I tried Fast Boot/Start but that only shaves off 3 seconds from the boot time - the main culprit for the slow start are my usb hubs and connected periferals, even though partial loading of drivers is set in BIOS - and it costs me more than 12 GB on the ssd, not sure if that is worth it...

    Guiri,

    Oops, yes that would be "wouldn't".

    Yeah, I wouldn't think the extra 12GB and wear & tear on the SSD would be worth the 3 seconds gain.

    I tried another x64 bit only ISO and it worked perfectly and the windows is now installed but it still did not read the key. I dont understand what the problem is now. Isn't there any other way to just extract the key from the BIOS?

    Can I make UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive from Windows XP? I have the ISO and Daemon Tools Lite by the way.

    Hello Partogi,

    Yes, you could create one for Windows 8 or Windows 7 in XP if you like.

    Shawn,

    The title of this excellent tutorial always confuses me. It reads to me like the setup for a bootable OS, but it actually is for an installation .iso on a flash drive.
