Microsoft is getting into this via a product they bought as well.
http://www.microsoft.com/virtualization/en/us/products-desktop.aspx

I just can't remember the name of the produc they bought but it was supposed to allow you to boot to Windows XP with the assistance of a server.

Check out this ass well if you haven't already:

The company that microsoft bought was called Kidaro. It looks like they have put this product into the MED-V product line.

DO you want instal win XP via Pen drive on your system or you want to install xp in your xp. If its the 2nd case, i am afraid there is no way you can do that.

How ever for the 1st case follow the steps on the following web site.
