This question already has an answer here:

I have:

  • ISO image of Windows XP install media
  • 4 GB USB flash drive
  • no CD/DVD drive
  • Linux (Linux Mint 14) installed

Note:

  1. WinToFlash is for Windows OS.
  2. UNetBootIn doesn't work unless you've tried.
  3. Gunthers' answer here doesn't seems to work for Windows XP.
  4. No, I do not want a Windows 7 USB boot installation.
  5. Lastly, this is not a duplicate of Make a bootable usb to install Windows XP from Linux. (That user wants to install Windows XP into his Dell Mini 9. But I want to make a USB for Windows XP installation)

Give a try to this tutorial. I'm not sure if that works only for making live USB of Linux. –  avirk Dec 31 '12 at 5:10
    
Nonono. Just to clarify, I want to make a USB bootable installer; not a live USB. But I will give it a try anyway. –  elwc Dec 31 '12 at 8:07
    
I know what exactly you want to do that's why I said "I'm not sure" :) –  avirk Dec 31 '12 at 9:09
    
Thanks for showing effort. I've tried and managed to boot into some GRUB but I don't know how to continue from there. In the meantime, I've also been looking at ms-sys for some time and I still fail. I believe it is capable though. –  elwc Dec 31 '12 at 10:44

1 Answer 1

What you need is Unetbootin build 494. This particular build allows to use NTFS volumes instead of ext4/MBR and others present in versions beside this one.

note: you have to format the USB to the desired FS before running Unetbootin.
