Not a full boot IE with operating system thats a NO NO.
I have booted full system install with a Hard Drive DVD iso file disk image it does save you having todo a full Windows install and all your
software ect but of coarse that has tobe done with
your computer working correctly.

You can go into the Bios and ask it boot USB/then CD/then HDD c drive

Although my very old laptop does not have those options.

Download a copy of Ubuntu or Mint and burn to a memory stick or dvd
(Google 'how do i make a live disk')

You should have a browser then and can get on line
