Review them entirely, with particular attention to Rule #2 and point #a. and #d. of "common sense" therein.
The "home" of "Install XP from USB" is here:
Read attentively these:
AND links therein
Then browse threads ALREADY in the Forum:
there are great chances that the same problem you asked help for has been already solved.
If nothing of the above helps, re-read once again point #d. of "common sense" and post some details on what you wish to do, under which operating systems on which USB stick, etc.

I dont know in german.
but again thanks for attention!
here I give you a short translation to the central part of the thread: by chance I found the instruction of roderick van domburg - EXZELLENT! - by assistance of bartpe, windows installation folder i386 and the van-domburg-instruction xp can be completely be installed. I've realized it without any problems. my cordially thanks to the author!
this is the link to van domburg whose text may be rendered here:
"With your drive all ready, you can now launch the Windows XP setup with a few custom parameters. Let’s assume that the files are available at D:\i386. Plugging in a device now won’t work. Remember that all USB devices will need to be plugged in right from the start while using BartPE. [D: steht hier für das laufwerk des usb-sticks auf bartpe!]
1. Run D:\i386\winnt32.exe /syspart:C: /tempdrive:C: /makelocalsource. Replace C: with the drive you want to install Windows to.
2. Proceed with the installation. When asked to convert the installation volume to NTFS, answer No. The setup program incorrectly believes that your USB drive (which is formatted as FAT) needs conversion.
The setup program will then silently close, which might make you think that something went wrong. Don’t worry though. Reboot your system, remove the USB drive(s) and – if all went well – you can now finish setting up Windows XP. Congratulations!"
the xp-installation per usb-stick is distinguished from a 'normal' installation per cd only in that way that there is not the option 'partition formatting'. formatting with diskpart is possible but then the whole hdd is affected (with deletion of all data). I myself have TWO xp on different partitions so that I can format the other partition before installing xp.
I hope this can help you - best - wadi
