You need to know if your motherboard can do this option.
Enter setup otion generaly when you turn your computer on press the DEL key and you are in the BIOS SETUP configuration. Go to the BOOT SEQUENCE and if it is possible choose USB option.Place this option on the first place with the UP or DOWN keys. For exemple fist boot drive : USB second boot drive HDD ,...
You must format your USB device as SYSTEM ! and have the system installed on it. You can find on the Web a light version of WINDOWS XP called LIGHT to put it on your USB device I think it is an USB flash drive, Is it?
If it is an external HDD you can install the entire system of Windows and boot by it bur select the right boot sequence in the BIOS setup.

First you need to get either DVD or USB working. The DVD can be easily replaced by a surplus part, from broken laptops. The USB ports, if not working, need to be electronically checked by a technician. Then, find a working DVD to reinstall a suitable OS. You can also generate a bootable USB drive (even flash type) from, for example, Windos 7 or 8. All you need is the original ISO file and a tool to generate the bootable drive (e.g. "Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool"). Good luck!

I need boot my computer from usb. what I need?


Generally, you need a few things:

1. The PC has to support booting from a USB flash/pen/key drive. There may be anywhere from 1-3 items to change in the BIOS settings to make this possible assuming your BIOS supports it. Some BIOS's may refer to your flash drive as a USB floppy or USB zip. Of course there are exceptions.
2. The USB flash drive must support booting from it in general.
3. The flash drive must contain the boot/system files.
4. The flash drive must have bootsector area. This is done with special utilities.

Check out this comprehensive link to make a bootable USB / flash drive in your choice of several different Operating Systems.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you!

INSTALLATION


Hello,

I don't think this is possible. Still we can work on this.

Even I am verymuch Intersted with these kind of issues. I haven't tried installing XP on USB flash drive. But I installed the XP on USB harddrive and it worked.

We can try this with your co-operation. To boot with the USB devices, first your computer or laptop should have the option to boot with the USB devices. You can check in BIOS, under BOOT order for this option.

If USB boot option is not there, then you cannot boot with the Flash drive, not only flash drive all USB devices. They will work only after booting into Windows.

Comming to installation procedure, installtion is same as installing the XP on harddrive. While installing the XP, at partition page, you can see the USB flash drive, select it and continue the installtion.

If your computer has the option to boot with the USB devices and if the flash drive won't boot into Windows after installtion, then we have to set Flash drive as Active partition from Disk Management, and then we can try. In Disk Management, right click on the USB drive and select set active partition. If it won't allow to set the USb flash drive as active, then it is not possible to install XP on flash drive.

Even I googled everywhere on how to do this, but not information.
Try that and let me know the status. But I am sure, it is possible on Pocket drivers or USB harddrives.
