Lot of things wrong here:
- exFAT is not a supported boot filesystem for any version of Windows.
- Any partitioning for Windows needs to be done with Boot Camp Assistant - this creates a special dual GPT/MBR partition map that can be read by all systems.
- I'm pretty sure you can't even install Windows XP on a 2011 MacBook Pro. Apple doesn't provide XP drivers for this system. You'll need Windows 7.
Boot back into the Mac OS, delete the Windows partition, set it up again with Boot Camp Assistant, and install a copy of Windows 7.
