Yes mate but here the tutorial uses diskpart but the prob is XP version of diskpart doesnt recognize usb sticks as disks thus if u are running XP you cant make your pendrive bootable with the method explained here

Well my friend this usb/dvd tool only works when you are using a ISO file delivered digitally from microsoft store and if your disk is not such, it will pop up with a message invalid image like something. Just try burning a custom ISO image and please respond.

Perhaps a written guide would be better for those that are still using XP that will eventually need to come here to make the transition.
