      well you have to use windows cd, boot on it and choose repair
      you can also use system restore point to revert back to earlier state where everything was fine.

    Although it's a great tool, Universal USB is for Linux only, unfortunately.

    Novicorp's WinToFlash utility is easily the best out there for copying Windows installers  (as well as bootloaders) onto USB drives.

      wintoflash to make xp bootable? ya it boot. but cant continue to setup windows xp. it just stuck. just google it. many people complaint about that. however it work great for windows 7.. on xp its not a solution. got any better recommendation?

      Universal USB its not for linux only. it can boot windows vista/7, however not xp. seems like xp on flash is impossible. most method not working and hard.

      You have to read the instructions!

      When you boot from the USB, there's gonna be a Step 1 and Step 2 option. Simply boot from Step 2 after Step 1 is complete!
