Why dont you just use the valid Windows XP disc that you have paid for?
You are not downloading a cracked copy and trying to install it are you?

this doesn't pass the sniff test....
sure sounds like your trying to get/use a pirated copy of xp...
there is no need to put xp on a usb drive and install it from there...
you can partition the drive and put a second copy on a separate partition using the cd drive to install windows

Howdy:

Please elaborate here. HOW was it made for you? What NEW THINGS and STUFF?

Why won't it boot like a normal XP cd?

I notice that you avoided answering any of the valid questions that we asked.
This confirms my suspicion that this is NOT a valid copy of XP.
