    Windows installs during boot, not from the Assistant. That's only for preparing the partition. You will need XP SP2 on a physical CD.

    You can burn the image to disk and it will work. Of course, that's assuming the image is of a copy you legally own. Doing anything else would be evil.

    The XP system is not that large so just burn the image to a dvd or a cd if it fits. Bootcamp assistant has to boot from a disk. It doesn't do the installing of windows in OSX
