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.

@OP
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.
