    Yes you can boot from USB mediums, as long as the laptop/computer supports booting from USB.

    There will be an option in the boot sequence of your BIOS ... USB-HDD or something similar. Would help if we had the model number of the motherboard you're using.

    Additional Comment:

    One of the more popular tools for creating a bootable usb is the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool.
