You will probably need to post more information on exactly what you want to do. Do you just have xp installed on the external hard drive? Do you have an xp install disk? an xp iso file? What does having the grub bootloader have to do with it? Do you have a separat /boot partition with the Grub files? You need to expalin in a little more detail what you are trying to accomplish. You might have better luck getting info on installing a windows system at a windows forum?

Grub2 can boot 'some' iso images but not all, it depends on the iso. The link below purports to explain how to add an XP Install ISO file to your grub4dos bootable USB flash drive. Might work from an external. I don't use windows so I have not tested this and have no idea if it will work:
