Also, why and how was the ISO patched?

Then after I patched the iso… Seems the iso was corrupted.

You’d have to get into creating a boot loader on the device, as well as partitioning it.

Thanks for the guide! Is there a way to have both windows 7 and windows 8 installations on the same USB stick?

It might be as easy as acquiring an RTM XP ISO, using Rufus to copy it to a freshly-formatted thumb drive, and then replacing all of its files with your copy (mount the ISO using something like Virtual CloneDrive, go into the virtual DVD-ROM and drop / drop all of the files from it over to your thumb drive).

My backup ISO is XP (Black) V6.0. I made ISO image file with Masic ISO. The ISO image file is 705 MB. But when I burn it into my USB device it turns out as about 7.2 GB. And it didn’t work too. I mean I couldn’t set up my PC with that USBdevice. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong? I don’t have the CD anymore to make the ISO image file again. What should I do?

If Rufus itself caused an error, I’d try formatting the flash drive (backing up whatever data might be on it), and trying again. Alternatively, you can try it in a different PC.

When booting up with the flash drive, you might need to access a boot menu, hitting F8, F12, or Escape during the boot sequence.
