AFAIK if you have a HDD or equivalent that your MOBO bios will recognize at boot time over a USB interface as a bootable device then you should be able to install on it,
The problem is that very few MOBO BIOS have this support,

That is NOT installing Vista on a USB memory stick - at all! All you're doing is placing the install files on a memory stick..
Note to OP. You can not install Vista on a memory stick, or any other USB connected drive and have a bootable operating system.
Vista must be installed to an internal hard drive.

or XP ISO file to create one using OPTION ONE.
Hope this helps,
