  1. what are trying to do once it booted of the USB drive?
  2. the main purpose is to retrieve the data from a crashed hard disk where the system restore point is not available and other factors are ineffective with the help of this bootable usb-hdd with OS.
    Secondly, to install and update the virus definitions to remove the viruses from other systems. What you expect more than this.

    In order to boot from the USB HDD, you need to re-install windows after some modifications.
    Here's a link that explains how to do it.
