    Windows XP will only install on to a separate and empty partition. If one doesn't exist, you have to create one first using Windows XP Setup: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/operatingsystems/ss/installxpnew1_6.htm

    Is the flash drive partitioned& formatted and assigned a letter by the current operating system?
