Do NOT unplug the USB stick until after the first normal start in windows has finished.

Make sure if you install windows in different folder (i.e. windows123) or partition other than first disk/first partition, you amend BOOT.INI on stick accordingly.
For example if you installing in folder WINDOWS123 change this line in boot.ini from:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS
to
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS123

If it's on partition 3 make it like this:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(3)\WINDOWS

If it's on second hard disk, partition 4 should look like this:
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(2)partition(4)\WINDOWS

Problem fixed?
Please have a look at Help_USB_MultiBoot5.txt, it's all explained in there.

Install Windows from USB, boot Linux, multiboot and a lot more with WinSetupFromUSB

Are you changing windows folder name?
Do you have any other USB mass storage devices plugged in during install?

edit:
After first phase- Text mode setup, do you choose this entry to continue Setup?

2. GUI Mode Setup Windows XP, Continue Setup + Start XP from HD 1

You should NOT Delete the Active Partition having DriveLetter C:
Just Select the partition C: as the partition on which you are going to Install Windows XP,
and then Select Quick Format with NTFS FileSystem.
There is no need at all to Delete Partitions.

If you Delete and Create New partitions, you have to Finish with F3 and Boot from USB-stick again and
run 1. TXT Mode Setup again so that DriveLetters get their correct value, just as for a new harddisk

See:

Syslinux Menu is not available in NTFS, only possible for FAT or FAT32.
FAT32 is useless for Install of XP from USB, too slow.
Puppy Linux can be used via GRUB4DOS Menu,
you only have to modify the file ntfs_menu_lst.txt in MULTI_CONTENT folder.
Remove the # in Front of the Puppy Linux entry.
In GRUB4DOS you can add for NTFS more different DOS Floppy Images,
but the dosapps must be either build in the Floppy Image, or launched from a FAT partition on Harddisk.
Because Direct Booting with MS-DOS is not available with NTFS Format.
