Procedure: Installing Windows XP into your PC using A Bootable USB
Installing Windows XP – This article shows you how to installing Windows XP into your PC using a single bootable USB flash drive Installer. This lets you install Windows XP on a netbook or another computer that may not have a disc drive. Installing Windows XP from a single bootable USB flash drive installer is always very useful. Especially, if the CD or DVD-ROM of your computer does not work properly. To installing Windows XP into your PC using a single bootable USB flash rrive installer, you need to follow some advanced steps.

On the startup menu you have two options, select option number 2 for text mode setup.
From this point on it is just like any other windows XP installation delete/recreate the primary partition on your pc and format it using NTFS. Make sure you delete ALL partitions and recreate a single partition or you will get the hal.dll error message.
Once the text mode portion of setup is complete it will boot into the GUI mode (you can press enter after the reboot if your too excited to wait the 30 seconds)
Once the GUI portion of setup is complete you will again have to boot into GUI mode this will complete the XP installation and you will end up at you XP desktop.
