You had Windows 8

You tried to install XP using Win2flash

To continue:

You ignored what the Win2flash tool intended scope is (and its instructions/documentation) and managed to attempt making your internal disk an "install disk for XP" .

Now a couple of questions:

  1. You mentioned a WinPE, which WinPE is it?
  2. Is it on a boot CD/DVD or on a USB stick? (or however can you move it to a USB stick or other NON-read-only device?)
