    I have a Vista virtual pc, my root OS is Win XP.

    Is there any way that I can use readyboost (the feature in Vista that allows
    you to use a flash card as RAM) in the VPC?

    I cant seem to reproduce any of the menus which govern this.

    Anyone done this?

  2. No, it's no possible. Only the mouse and/or the keyboard can be used as an
    USB device inside a VM.

    Rats, foiled again!

    Thanks for such a quick answer.

    I guess that its ok to have vista as the root OS and boost the system memory
    to give more to a virtual pc.

  4. ReadyBoost will not boost your system memory; it will only accelerate the
    access to the paging file by caching part of it.
