    I've got it installed on a USB flash drive here, I haven't used it much as I feel that Android Ice Cream Sandwich (V 4) will probably take over.

    Possibly, not sure about Mac compatibility. I don't see why not though, the hardware is basically the same. As long as you can get the Mac to boot from a disc it should work I would think.

    Boooooo.

    But then again, I don't like women that give it all out on the first date either. That's a good thing IMO.

    I've got windows on it, and i've had linux before also, so i think it should do. The days of silly processors on macs has long gone luckily.

    I messed about with XP on a USB stick ages ago but it was a bit unstable as it had ben hacked pretty badly.

    So tell me more about USB OSs now???

    I'll get them bolted up as soon as i'm home, then the fun of bleeding them begins. I'll try to get more pics but there wont be anything you've not seen before. I'll then go out for a spin and see if I can stop!!!

    It's all about the Linux is that instance basically. Bottom line, if you want to run a stable and fast OS from a USB stick, then it is going to be a Linux based variant.

    Android 2.2/2.2 R2, Linux LDE, Knoppix, SUSE, Fedora, SLAX, WHAX, Ubuntu, DamnSmallLinux. All of those distos can be run directly from a flash drive without any messing about.

    Windows is, and is always likely to be, a bit of a pain to reliably run from a flash disk. It can be done though. Not really much hacking to the OS required.

    I used a tool called PEBuilder when I last did it many moons ago for a customer, and used this TechReublic article: SolutionBase: Boot Windows XP from a USB flash drive | TechRepublic

    That sounds familiar to me. The problem with windows is it is constantly writing to the registry. A USB stick can only be written to a few million times before it starts to pack up. As you can imagine, with windows making changes to the registry a USB pens life expectany is shortened dramatically.

    You'll be fine mate.
    Bleeding is easy and the stopping will be fine.
    You'll stop one way or another. :)

    I'm sure they will be fine and stopping will be superb. Not looking forward to swapping the braided hoses over. Need to do it really quick to minimise fluid loss.

    Avoiding fluid loss will help but there is always the eazibleed for backup....

    yeah but relax and chill out when doing it.
    Just don't flap or panick or any thing, it will make it worse. so just relax and you'll be fine.

    What do you mean mate?

    This is my plan:

    1 - Remove old calipers and cariers but keep the hoses conected.
    2 - Bolt up the new carriers and pretty red/pink calipers with the new hoses connected caliper end
    3 - Unscrew the hoses at the brake line end and quickly crew the new hose onto the brake line trying not to loose too much fluid.
    4 - Then open the reseviour, connect ezibleed and bleed calipers
    5 - go for a spin.

    I meant if you do get fluid loss, then just fully bleed the system up using the eazibleed. Happy days either way...

    I only have 1 litre of brake fluid so I cant do a full flush! Need to keep as much fluid in the lines as possible.

    Worse case, if you run out of brake fluid just use the stuff you catch or whats left over in the old calipers.

    Smudge, hahaha yeah it does a bit.

    I dont plan to. I'm going to open the resevuoir until the lines are bolted on as I dont want a load of air getting in the system.
