Hi neerajsahu

HERE's a well written article by Brian Posey of Tech Republic on the topic.

The example he uses in his article is booting Windows XP off of a pen drive (flash drive).

Please, let me know if this response was "Helpful" or a a "FixYa" for you or, of course, if you have additional questions, etc on this topic.

If I did not answer your question satisfactorially, plz, b4 assigning a "Thanks for Trying" or lower rating to my "Solution", let me know. I may have misunderstood you or the problem you are experiencing.

In any case, I will work w/ you until your problem is resolved or diagnosed. I promise! :)

Thank you

    Plz, in future, provide ALL the information pertinent to your problem in your ORIGINAL request. We have no way of knowing the specifics of your request unless you do so.

    You asked how to make a pen drive bootable but did not say WHY or how you intended to use your pen drive for booting.

    To score us w/ a "Thanks for Trying" and THEN provide us w/ the remaining information - more specific to what you are looking for is a bit unfair.

    We're here to help but you must understand that the world of computing is complex. It often takes more than one exchange of information between you and an expert before your question is answered or your problem is resolved.

    Be patient. Communicate clearly w/ the expert(s). Provide them w/ ALL the information pertinent to your question or problem. The answers will come.

    You don't have to score a response or "solution" right away. Wait until the issue has been resolved to your satisfaction THEN score the expert(s) who graciously volunteered their time and expertise to help you.

    If you'll read in my signature on the "solution" I provided you, I DID request that you let me know if you were dissatisfied w/ my "Solution" BEFORE grading the answer w/ a "Thanks for Trying" or lower score.

    Thank you,

If your 'pendrive' is a USB memory stick and has write protect, it is doing what it should do, and that is protect the data. Disable the write protect and then it should format fine.
