    Unhappy Cant get MultiSystem to load WInXP onto USB - ERROR ISO NOT SUPPORTED

    Here's basically what I've done:

    1: ran the script and installed everything


    2: Formatted the USB drive


    3: Unplugged and replugged back in my usb and ran Multisystem


    4: Confirmed the drive


    5: Installed PLoP Boot manager & Win firadisk.ima


    6: Selected my ISO


    7: Added the Iso and then got this message:
    [1]
    [2]


    What did I do wrong?

    Unetbootin isnt working either, Ive used WinUSB, Unetbootin and now this, they've worked for Win 7 in the past but for some reason its not working now for WinXP...

    Ive used many different Distros and OSes and their versions for 2 years and about 40 usb drives. This error i got 1st time and it was with 2012 oct win xp 64. Other 64 were working. And on usb witch already had many OS`es and i couldnt put this one i put another one 64 older. I want solution also.

    UPDATE: SOLUTION

    Use any other windows ISO and replace it in USB flash changing to name u used for importing ISO of non-needed ISO name. And it works. Strange solution- why it doesnt work normaly.

    I have installed Windows XP Pro on flash using the instructions on this site:

    http://tdoui.webs.com/Install%20And%...From%20USB.pdf

    I use it for my Atom powered home entertainment center as Ubuntu does not see the S-Video.

    It plays AVI's and MPG4's ok but is otherwise very slow.
    The flash drive only works on the computer it was made on, like normal XP.

    I have not been able to install XP to USB in any other way.
