I am pretty sure you can't boot an OS from a USB. Burn the install media to a disc or put it on a spare partition. USB boot is for anti-virus or PC Diagnostic Tools.

On that model,there are a few things that can cause your problem.None are simple and the most common is the GPU (video chip) has lost contact due to over heating.
The cost of repairing it, if you could find someone willing ,Would be way more than one that old is worth.

Xp had a lot of issues with shutdown early on, but they should have been mostly resolved.

1. Make sure windows is up to date, IE all updates.
2. Make sure all drivers are up to date.
3. Run some anti virus/adware/spyware programs, could be something preventing your computer from shutting down.
4. You aren't unplugging and USB/firewire devices without stopping it first are you?

If you are more than just a beginner you can attach that drive to your PC and run a drive copy program that will create an exact image of your current drive. Once that is created then you can add the new drive to the computer make sure your system recognizes it and can boot from it. I have done this many times.
