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.

For steps to install xp using a pen drive please refer the link below:

Please reply back if anything was not succesfull...

Regadrs,
Yateesh Varma.

My system is not reading any pendrive so please give me solution very soon


first check your pen drive in some other system to make sure that your pen drive is not faulty
then try repairing your usb drivers of your operating system by using the cd
ex- if it is windows xp then use bootable disk & fast repair or override the operating system on the same drive.
