Why do I receive a bootmgr error when trying to dual-boot Ubuntu and Windows XP?

I am using Ubuntu and want to make a dual boot for XP.
I used Unetbootin to make an XP USB from the ISO but got an error saying bootmgr missing.
Is there a way to solve the problem? I don’t have the CD.

    As far as I know none of the bootmanagers installed by Unetbootin are compatible for a Windows boot media.

    You should use one of the many guides listed here
