I'm trying to create a bootable USB drive to install XP Pro. Should the drive be formated FAT32 or NTFS? For whatever reason the drive won't boot at all and I'm wondering if it might be the wrong format.

Hi! When you say the drive won't boot; can you explain? Do you mean you are not able to see the drive in Windows Explorer?

Can you see the drive in disk management?( Control Panel- Administrative Tools-Computer Management- Disk Management.)

If you see the drive there, right click and assign it a drive letter, then format it.

Hope this helps!!

PS Would also like to know the media source you are trying to use to create the bootable USB !!

The more We know, the easier it is to help you!
