It isn't recommended and needs a lot of work to get xp installed on USB drives. XP wasn't built for being installed on removable drives, and there also aren't many reasons or advantages that would bring. If you want it so you can boot to your XP from any PC, then you can forget it as the different hardware needs different drivers and HALs, and also licensing would be an issue.

With Windows 7 this is much less of a problem, it should be installable to a USB drive quite easily, and as it only uses one vanilla HAL and has a large driver base it should also run on different hardware. The biggest issue also here would be licensing and activation.

If you still want to install XP to the USB drive, check the links below:

You can't install Windows XP on a USB drive.

With Windows 7 however you can do it. This is explained on:

But your SSD is an Hard disk then? On a normal USB drive it doesn't work.
