    I have a macbook air and I don't have the external dvd drive.
    I need to make a bootable usb key with windows xp from OSX lion.
    I have the iso. Is the disk utility able to do that? I tried using boot camp but it ruined 1 of my USBs, but let's not talk about that.

    So, is there a way to make a bootable windows XP USB drive? ANd then install it in boot camp?

    I googled about it and couldn't find anything...

    $30 external DVD drive from your local store will be useful for this project and for any other DVD installs down the road.
