Post If your BIOS doesn't support booting from USB
Should you be limited by your motherboard's BIOS from booting via USB, then try using
PLoP to work around this limitation. It hasn't worked in every MOBO that I've tested,
but it works in most of them.

Because the system on which I wish to install windows does not have a working system, advise about configuring the bios or installing plop boot manager does not apply.
I read somewhere that there is a way to configure a flash drive to appear to the system as a CD. Do you know anything about that?

Yes, it's possible but works not with all controllers.

Can you provide or direct me to instructions for configuring a flash drive as a CD? If it doesn't work I'm only out a little time.

Sorry, we can't provide you information about this. It's serious endearing engineering job. You may try to search information with bing or google.

Yes, it's possible but dangerous operation. Do this if you understand what are you doing! You can damage your USB pen!!!

Urg. I posted this like 5 times already. Thanks for making it a thread though.
Wish I could help with the CD emulation. PloP is the only method I know of.
