The guide Make a Live USB to boot from a USB drive is clear and helpful.

Can we load Windows XP on USB drive and use on a system with Windows 7 OS?

Waiting for your reply

Another comment for you! Sorry to spam all this at you. I got a comment recommending another tool, Linux Live USB, (http://www.linuxliveusb.com/en/download) which allows you to get it going from a disk. Hopefully it can work from there.

Okay, so another note- I actually just got back from chatting with a Linux guru, and he was saying that the windows XP .ISO will have some anti-piracy stuff on it you'll need to get around, so it won't be easy, but it will be possible.

In theory, it should be possible to do this with any .iso file, as long as you have a clean copy. One person actually commented on the instructable mentioning that they had done this with Windows XP (with success). It shouldn't matter what the current operating system on the machine is, as long as you can get to the boot menu.

Best of luck, and I hope it goes well!

Thank you!
Where are you? If you're in the U.S. it must be really late. (or early, depending on your point of view)

I like to get up early (I get more out of the day that way) and I also have driving school this week, so I've been having a rather busy vacation.
I see. I get up quite early as well, but not quite 4:00 early. :)

It was posted at 6:00... I would never get up at 4!
Oh, oops. I must have done the math wrong. (I'm on Korea time)
