    My problem isn't booting...... A bootable USB drive is a bootable USB drive.

    From what I can see the instructions tell you fow to create a bootable USB and how to get the XP files onto the USB drive.

    If it doesn't work then I've no idea.

    The XP files are on it, and boot, hence why it does the text based part, it's just the GUI part it doesn't.

    Believe me, I'm following the steps, may just be the ISO I'm using.
    I attempted to repair it DOS >.<. Same thing.

    I've never had that error when install XP. Looks like you might have a faulty image. I'd try another ISO and use those files.
