I think there was an option in the cmos settings to enable boot from USB hard drive. Pretty sure you maybe able to boot it like that but you have to probably play with the cmos setting.

Something is wrong with your xp then. Because that is how you boot from it.

Was xp installed on the external hard drive on your computer? If not, then that will explain it.
