    I have an updated desktop that has Windows 7.

    I still have my Windows XP SP2 CD.

    I also inherited an HP netbook that had XP SP2 and wanted to know if it is
    possible to take my Windows XP SP2 CD and place it into desktop without it
    trying to reformat it and then to just copy it unto a Flash USB Drive.

    From there, I can then reinstall Windows XP SP2 unto netbook.

    Can that be done?

    Why don't you just use the hidden Recovery partition (not to be confused
    with System Restore) to reinstall WinXP on the netbook?

    Speaking of which, why do you need to reinstall WinXP on the netbook anyway?
