How to install Windows XP from USB

Jun 20, 2009
  1. I have a laptop (dell latitube x300) that needs to be reformatted since i don't have the password for the current xp installed. wondering if anyone had a trick for installing xp without a cd drive. anyone?
    i can boot from usb with a little trick i figured out since the bios is locked by the manufacturer and a copy of xp home sp1 so all i need is a little guidance on where to go from there
