You will need to access the BIOS/CMOS and make sure the USB boot option is there and enabled. Then you will have to change the priority of the option to come before your hard drive. If you tell me what kind of machine you have I can tell you how to get to the BIOS.
Thanks!

    You can use BartPE (freeware) installed on the pen drive (with the XP install files also on the pen drive) and install it that way.

How can i install windows xp to pen drive


Hi,

Prerequisites
  1. A USB pen drive with 2GB+ storage.
  2. Windows XP (preferably a SP3, but not necessarily) ISO or CD.
  3. Batch files to write the boot record and copy XP files Download Here.

Perceptions:
From here on I will assume that you have downloaded the batch files and unzipped them and put the WinXP2USB folder directly in C drive so the path to that folder is C:\WinXP2USB and i will also assume that your USB drive letter is H. If these value differ in your system please change accordingly.

Want to FORMAT hard disk with PEN DRIVE


you need to copy an operating system installer to your pen drive...

like for example you want xp or xp sp2, xp sp3, vista, r window 7..

you need it's installer cd and copy it to your pen drive...

if you want you can try searching for sites that you can download an installer..then save it to your pen drive...make sure you will copy the right application with bootable exe...so that you can format it your boot menu..

try this site it looks like reliable.. but i never tried downloading xp installer before that's why i don't know the circumstances that may happen...

i know it is about 2G + in size that's why i'm advicing you to buy a new one or if you have one just copy it to your pen drive through other computer with cd drive..

i hope i've helped you on this matter..

I have hp 520 leptop my cd rom is not working and my win xp is currept then i wants install the win xp with bootable pandrive but how make the tha pandrive is bootable-


You have problems.

It is possible to to use a Pen Drive/ Flash drive to load windows XP, but the process is never 100% reliable. You need to have the actual equivalent of the XP system disk, or boot disk, on your pen drive. Even then your system may not recognise the pen drive as a system disk. It works for some but not not for others. If you have your original XP disks, try loading it on the pen drive via another PC. It works best if the pen drive is formatted to NTFS, but may still work on FAT32 format. 2Gb pen is a general good size. Trial and error.

There is reportedly an XP Lite version that is more suited to this, but I am not clear on the details or legalities..

Your only real sensible option is to replace the CDROM. You may wish to upgrade to DVDRAM Drive for a few cents more.

For bootable pen drive


first of all:

the computer u want to boot with the usb-pen drive has to support booting from usb (BIOS setting)

use program drivekey by hp to make usb-stick bootable(format to FAT or FAT32
get usbdos + components or linux as operating system on stick, u cannot install windows on a stick!

good luck, many have tried, only pros worked out how...
