I was trying to write windows xp image on my transcend jetflash 8gb, but got an error in the middle of the format process.

PeToUSB Error!

FormatEx Error[11]: An Error Occurred Formating the Drive.

Is there any way to make 8 gb flash drive bootable, e.g. install windows from it?

Download the later version of PeToUSB

This version can format more than 4GB, while your version probably can't.
