My disk drive doesn't work. I got an external one, but I can't boot from it apparently. I can boot from USB, I've noticed. So I'm wondering if I can put my 3 vista recovery discs onto a single bootable flash drive. Any ideas?

If you have 3 different DVDs you will probably need 3 different boot sectors. You will have to partition your usb drive into 3 partitions and then dump those dvds along with their boot sectors into them
