Google is your friend. You can find instructions here on how to install Wiindows from a USB flash drive. This is for Windows 7. Should also work for XP.

Novicorp WinToFlash you mean?

yes, that is the one!

I have used it many times and its great

yes, flashing the pendrive is the one and only best option to make your pendrive bootable.

@helenspencer - that is certainly not the case unless by flashing you mean copying anything to the drive. Here is a method using no third party software.

Don't waste your time with anything other than Hiren's Boot CD. Search for the "Hiren's Boot CD Download". It is 100% free so don't be scammed by someone trying to sell it. I've worked with computers for over 30 years. I had trouble making other bootable drives due to they all leave something out you need to know. Hiren didn't forget anything. Even a monkey can make a bootable CD\USB with Hiren's instructions.
