    i'm using winusbmaker v2.0 beta release to instal windows XP pro sp2.
    when i boot my usb,it copies setup to hard disk.Then it shows MS DOS based setup is copied to hard disk and it asks to press enter.
    After pressing enter, again it loads the xp setup and after choosing the partition on hard disk, it copies setup to hard disk

    after finishing the copy,it does not shows gui interface.

    this is my problem

    please tel me a solution asap.

    make it boot to the hdd instead of the usb after it copies files to the hdd. once it copies to hdd and reboots, it needs to boot to the files it copied.

    if I am understanding correctly.

    Try using another tool for making XP bootable USB.

    Irrelevant. The setup clearly boots from his USB stick at the beginning.

    His problem is not rebooting from the hard disk, as EFA11 already explained.

    Yeah, that can be a problem with some usb thumb drives after files are copied it will not revert to Hard drive but go back to usb and start whole install again usually caused by setting usb device as first boot in bios, rather than using function key if available to go to boot menu to select boot device.
