How to install operating system through USB pen drive?

Answer:

For creating a bootable USB drive with Windows 2000 or XP
installer we are going to use a utility called
WinSetupFromUSB. Download it from MSFN forums and install
it. You are going to need the Windows 2000/XP installation
disk. If you have an ISO, extract the iso. Enter the path to
Windows 200/XP installer as Source. After this, plugin in
your USB device and format it. You can use the PEtoUSB tool
to format USB drives smaller than 2GB as FAT16 drive.
However I would recommend using HP Format Tool to format
drives as FAT32 or NTFS (recommended). That is all you need
to do to create a basic installer for Windows 2000 and
Windows XP on your pen drive (USB device). Don’t bother
yourself with any of the other settings. Click on GO to
begin the process. WinSetupFromUSB is a fairly advanced tool
and allows to you create multiboot pen drives that can have
Windows Vista, Windows 7 and even Linux installers. If you
want to know more about this utility just read through the
thread at MSFN forums.
