How old is this system?

From my search on this particular system, it's over 3 years old. I don't think the BIOS supports booting from USB. To be certain, check the BIOS to see if it has USB in the boot menu.

BIOS needs to support booting from USB

Taken from the PDF you link to:<p>
<i><b>However, before you can create a bootable UFD, you must clear a few hurdles. You saw that one coming didn?t you?<p><p><br>
The first hurdle is having a PC in which the BIOS will allow you to configure the USB port to act as a bootable device. The
second hurdle is having a UFD that that will work as a bootable device and that?s large enough and fast enough to boot an operating system such as Windows XP. The third hurdle is finding a way to condense and install Windows XP on a UFD.</b></i><p><br>

UBCD4WIN works great too, they have instructions for creating a boot disk on USB
