    dude!
    u can boot from usb drive if and only if u have bootable portable USB version of any operating system.

    If you are looking to install windows xp from USB let me tell its quite complicated. And i hear that it will install properly only if the HDD is not partitioned (not sure abt this).

    If you want to boot into a feature limited version of XP then try BART's PE or similar s/w.

    i will suggest you not to use USB to install your OS as it may give you some problems during installation but the better idea is to get a windows xp disc from any computer vendor and use that to install your OS.

    Windows xp disc is the best option to install OS on laptop.
    and please post the complete question with proper laptop details, i am sorry to say but your thread/ question was incomplete.

    You can try out Feather Linux

    @ShAdOwCoN
    I think my post was in response to your Post at No 9.
    suggesting torrents.

    Sorry. I should have referred @newprouser
    to your Post No 2. Suggestion No 2.
    probably he also missed suggestion No 2., like me .

    In Google Search for "Feather Linux'"
    the link is No 4 now.

    PARA TWO:
    for Windows : your post No 2. linked now.

    I tried this once but it is way too complicated.Better avoid.
    Google search will give you a lot of results with tutorials, but trust me not worth it.
    Just pop in a CD in your drive & you'll be done in a flash.
