If you check the net, there are many places that explain how. If you do not have a DVD to copy the files from it may not help.

But check this Microsoft site.

I have a laptop also where i will copy windows files to usb from. However, i would like to know if this particular motherboard supports USB boot ?

Go into the bios and look. Sometimes, motherboard bios sees the usb drive as another hard drive. So also keep that in mind while looking.
