First of all, you will need:
*A USB key (capacity:1 or 2 GB;)
*A Windows XP CD ( official version )
*A PC with a CD player and a USB key
*And this software WinSetupFromUSB : http://www.datafilehost.com/download-109e97af.html

It will also require that:
*Your USB key is bootable;
*Your machine accepts the boot on your USB key (see in the BIOS);
*Your key is fast enough to avoid delays during installation of the OS;

Installing XP

Once downloaded, run the installation software and follow the installation wizard. At the end of the installation, the software will launch.
*Step 1: Insert your Windows XP CD into the CD ROM drive and click Browse
*Step 2: Enter the destination path on the PC
*Step 3: Select your CD ROM drive where your CD is Windows XP and click OK
*Step 4: Click Refresh and then go on the small arrow just to the left and select the USB key that you used to boot XP
*Step 5: Select Fixed
*Step 6: That everything is ready you can just click on the GO
*Wait for the copying procedure. Then close the software (you are informed when the copy is complete)
*Installing Windows XP
*In a first time you connect the USB to your netBook and go into the BIOS
*Then set your BIOS to boot your PC on USB key;
*Once done, save and restart your PC;
*Here, you'll have two lines in the GRUB menu;
*The first is to select the startup of the installation procedure
*The second line will be for the rest of the installation and the first boot of Windows XP;
*Therefore boot on the USB key until Windows XP is fully installed.
*Follow the installation instructions as for a normal installation
*Now your Windows XP is installed with your USB key!
