Try making a bartspe and then use pe2usb. Then use those files as source.

You've been asking a LOT of questions about a LOT of different OS's lately. Do you have some sort of plan or are clueless about what to try?

XP won't install from a USB flash drive without jumping thru some hoops. And you'll still need a CD/DVD drive to make the USB trick work, so why wouldn't you just install directly from the disc?

Or may be you are interested in booting Live XP and then from there call winnt32.exe from \i386 directory.

by live XP i mean XP PE mode....
