How To Install Windows XP From USB Pen Drive [With Images]

Windows XP Operating System has aged now the reason behind that is MICROSOFT has stopped updating, maintenance, and providing service related to all windows XP-related issues.

So I personally suggest that if you are using this OS please upgrade to Windows 7, 8, or 10.

To install Windows XP using a USB pen drive you first have to create a bootable pen drive that contains all system files and executable files needed for Windows XP Installation.

Now to create a bootable USB pen drive you can use a number of free software which helps us to create or make a bootable or startup USB flash drive.

Below I have mentioned some of the popular free software::

  • Novicorp Win To Flash
  • Rufus
  • Win To Bootic
