Here you are some links which you might find useful. It depends also on the operating system you’re running because the ways described require some Linux tools.

hey hey, sorry to bump an old topic.

i have been trying to do it with a linux that it for usb, but i stoped after i tested it which required a boot cd to look for the usb, and then afterwards, after i read that it wasnt suppose to touch the hard drives of the pc, as it dosnt require them. i restarted, and had a few problems booting up. so i have given up on it since.

But yeah, your PC should support booting off USB which is true of all newer PC's.
