TinyXP is a stripped-down version of the Windows XP operating system that is designed for computers that have limited hard drive space (or individuals who do not want all of the features in the full version). Although the OS is smaller, the installation process is the same as for a normal XP installation. Installing TinyXP from a flash drive is only possible on computers that are able to boot from the USB port, which is an adjustment you will have to make in BIOS before starting the operation.
