Boot your computer.
Insert your USB device.
Follow the instructions for your particular operating system (it's different for each OS) about making a bootable device.
Install an operating system on your USB device
Set your BIOS to boot from USB (again, the exact process is dependent on your particular hardware, different for every motherboard/manufacturer.)

How to create a bootable USB using Vista or Windows 7


Having a bootable USB is very essential, especially if you are a Netbook user. Using bootable USB to install an operating system (OS) not only makes the installation faster, but also saves a DVD.Creating or using an USB drive to install Windows operating systems is very easy if you follow the below mentioned steps.

Here we assume that you are using either Vista or Windows 7 to create a bootable USB.

1. Insert your USB (4GB+ preferable) stick to the system and backup all the data from the USB as we are going to format the USB to make it as bootable.

2. Open elevated Command Prompt. To do this, type in CMD in Start menu search field and hit Ctrl + Shift + Enter. Alternatively, navigate to Start > All programs >Accessories > right click on Command Prompt and select run as administrator.
3. When the Command Prompt opens, enter the following command:DISKPART and hit enter.LIST DISK and hit enter.Once you enter the LIST DISK command, it will show the disk number of your USB drive.
4. In this step you need to enter all the below commands one by one and hit enter. As these commands are self explanatory, you can easily guess what these commands do.
SELECT DISK 1 (Replace DISK 1 with your disk number), CLEAN, CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY,SELECT PARTITION 1ACTIVE,FORMAT FS=NTFS(Format process may take few seconds),ASSIGN,EXIT.
Don't close the command prompt as we need to execute one more command at the next step. Just minimize it.

5. Insert your Windows DVD in the optical drive and note down the drive letter of the optical drive and USB media. Here I use "D" as my optical (DVD) drive letter and "H" as my USB drive letter.

6. Go back to command prompt and execute the following commands:

D:CD BOOT and hit enter. Where "D" is your DVD drive letter.CD BOOT and hit enter to see the below message.BOOTSECT.EXE/NT60 H:(Where "H" is your USB drive letter)

7. Copy Windows DVD contents to USB.You are done with your bootable USB. You can now use this bootable USB as bootable DVD on any computer that comes with USB boot feature (most of the current motherboards support this feature).Note that this bootable USB guide will not work if you are trying to make a bootable USB on XP computer.

How to go usb boot in poweredge2600


The PE26x0 series was many server-line generations ago, thus booting from USB devices was not available at that time, thus it will not work today either. This includes USB based bootable devices (i.e. bootable USB key, DVD ROM..etc).


Even with the latest BIOS A21 for the PE2650, there is no support for bootable USB devices.

I WANT TO MAKE MY PEN DRIVE AS BOOTABLE PENDRIVE FOR WINDOWS XP


The USB port on most computers is not a bootable USB port. Only after Windows has started up. the USB device driver is running then the USB port will work
UNLESS
Some later model computers/laptop have a bootable USB port and you can change the boot order in the BIOS configuration and change the devices boot order to make the USB port the first boot device.
