I have an Archos Arcdisk, which is a Flash Drive with a Male USB Plug.
For my experimentation with successfully installing windows on a flash drive , it must be directly connected to the ide socket on the m/b.
Idealy what I want if there is such a thing is a USB female to IDE female adaptor or converter.Or some help with the Pinouts for the ide to usb.

Don't think it's useful, since building such converter is a difficult task and scheme must be complicated.
Anyway, many modern motherboards supports boot from USB flashdrive, so additional converter isn't needed.

I am aware that many m/b's support Boot by USB Device.
However if you have ever tried to install windows to a flash drive and Run it Successfully you would be aware that It Does Not Work.??.
