  1. XP (and Vista, 7, 8, etc....) are not designed to be installed on removable media. Even if you could you would have to install drivers for every PC you plugged the drive into.

    You cannot install Windows XP on removable media. Your USB thumb drive is removable media.
  6. Seems to work just fine on hiren's boot disk. Boots up the stripped down version on most of the PC's I've worked on. Granted it uses a non dos boot loader. Once it's loaded it's all XP under the hood.
