No, XP is not supported, and this support is not planned.

Used the Deb package for Ubuntu on Debian.
WinUSB formated the flash drive and copied files.
In the end of the process of "Writing grub" I got Exit code: 256, but the Windows 8 flash drive boots and is installable.
Thanks a lot for this tool.
I tried with Unetbootin but didn't get it to work, but with WinUSB I did.
