I am giving you the solutions for Windows XP.

Click on the start and go to control panel. Select system and then the “device manager”.

See here for your device. There will be a yellow exclamation mark next to your drive or you may need to click on to “Find your drive”. If your drivers are not installed then you have to install the correct driver or need to update the installed driver. I hope it will solve your problem. For further information click on this link.

Hello,

 

This might be a result of a virus or corrupted file on your pen drive.  If you are also using the pen drive to transfer or copy files from other computers, your pen drive is prone to have errors or can be infected with a virus.  Try to scan  your pen drive using a very powerful anti-virus and have it cleaned.  Remove files that are not associated with the boot process  and try to use it again as a startup drive.  If it still does not work you will have to reformat your pen drive and have the startup files installed again.

That problem happens because the computer is looking for the operating system on the USB flash drive. If the system is unable to find a suitable operating system to boot the machine, it will trigger an error. This can happen if the option to allow USB devices to boot the computer is enabled in the BIOS. Removing the USB flash drive and restarting the computer should fix the problem.

If you want to make your computer to boot even when the USB flash drive is inserted, you have to make some changes in the BIOS. Restart your computer then press Del, Delete, F2, or whichever key is used to go to the BIOS. In the BIOS, go to the USB section and disable any option that allows USB devices to boot the computer.

After this, go to the drive management section or the boot sequence section and make sure the hard drive is set as the primary boot device. Set the optical drive as second boot option and other devices as third. Save the settings and exit.
