Can i make a bootile usb for dell dimision 2400


If the BIOS setting for the Boot up device order does not have the USB as a boot up device then it is not possible to boot up your computer with an USB device.
For a Drive 0 seek problem -
First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.
