  1. Have you installed all updates and drivers for your system?

    Assuming you want to dual-boot, then yes, it is possible to boot from USB drives. Google should have some guides as to how to go about doing this.

    If you would be fine with a Virtual Machine, you could install VirtualBox (or alternatives) and install XP within Ubuntu.

    Yes i want to dual boot ,however my CD drive is faulty.SO i want to boot from USB.
    Now i have the ISO image of Windows XP through which i want to create a bootable pen drive.Is there any software in linux that lets me do that like for eg the Startup disk creator for creating linux bootables.
    I dont want it to run on a VM.
  3. You could try UnetBootin.com... really not sure it will work through.
