    Hello Dude ...


    Try to Find a Working Mac first of all

    Then Use your OS X Disc to Install on to the USB Drive

    So first you must Do this


    After that now you will be able to Boot from the USB Disk easily

    If you find any Repairs ... then you can perform the Repair Disk Utilities


    And When you boot ... Hold Down the OPTION KEY


    There it will allow to select Booting from the USB Drive

    That is it



    VERY GOOD LUCK

    Dear friend..

    The installation process in this process is same again like other OS but installing an Snow Leopard OS via USB is not so easy as you think.

    First of all, you have to copy a disc of your Snow Leopard OS in your Mac hard disk.
    When you create a copy for that, you make a separate folder in your Mac,
    Its time to connect your USB in your Mac USB socket.
    Keep ensure that your USB should be empty and there should not be any virus in that.
    If there is any virus will remain in the USB, then it will create a problem when you install OS via USB.

    Now, copy that Mac OS Folder in your USB safely and there should be no other file except Mac OS.
    When the Mac OS copied in your USB, press right click and see, there is a bootable option comes.
    Make your USB bootable from there and eject the device,
    If the Bootable option is not available there, then download a software for making USB a bootable device.

    The name of the software is a BOOTABLE USB

    Convert your USB with this folder and now install the Snow Leopard OS via USB in your Mac,

    Hope it works,
    Thanks

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say.............................

    1.Firstly insert the USB to your Mac and then insert the CD in your Mac.

    2.Then you open the Disk Utility from the Applications.

    3.And then you transfer the OS files into that CD from the disk utility.

    4.Then you unplug the USB from your Mac and then insert the same CD in your Mac.

    5.And now you install the OS as you install the other OS.

    That's it by doing as i said you can solve your problem.

    All the best...........................
