If you have other XP Source, please read FAQ-5 in There is however recently developed a NEW procedure using USBXPSetup package, Install XP from USB AFTER Booting with PE from HDD or USB, which does not have this problem. In fact the only thing I do is Create the XP BootFolder $WINNT$.BT of only 12 MB on the Install Drive by parsing dosnet.inf and to specify in TXTSETUP.SIF where to find the FULL XPSOURCE. XP Setup Source Folder can be on USB-stick or on partition 1 of USB-HDD or second HDD-Drive.
The XP Source might even be on CD/DVD, but we prefer of course to Install from fast USB-stick. So the $WINNT$.LS of about 500 MB is not made in this NEW way of Install XP from USB, this saves time and there is no risk of loosing files during the XP Setup process.I advice you to use the NEW procedure. It is NOT the PATA Harddisk which is causing the problem. In general your BIOS / Motherboard and USB-stick type determine whether you can boot from USB. But to solve your problem you can try the NEW technique:.
Install XP from USB AFTER Booting with PE from HDD or USB. The advantage of the NEW technique is that there are no changes needed in the BIOS Setting. Booting for XP Setup occurs all the time as normal from the C-Install Drive if you Install on C-Drive. Thus the USB-stick does not need to be bootable and it is not needed that the motherboard supports booting from USB.
