Boot to win98 operating system. Insert the XP operating CD. IT will automatically open a window asking you to select Install winXP prof. It will ask for new installation and Upgrade (recommended)

select upgrade and select next and follow the instructions. it will restart and ask you select the os.
select xp in blue screen. install the OS other than C Drive.

please don't ever install in c drive.. do with caution.


Enjoy.

I am running win 7 & when tried to install xp its showing compatibility problem . pl reply


Remember.... the OS compatibility is only lower to upper...not upper to lower....i.e.....
Win7 is higher than WinXP....so u cant run / install WinXP using Win7...but u can do the otherway round....i.e...1st u can install WinXP in C: drive, then let the machine start, once u get to WinXp dekstop then install Win7 in D: drive...(it's called Dual Boot)...so on the boot screen u can choose which OS to work with when the PC starts....
all the best
pls revert back...and kindly leave a rating and feedback to this solution...it will help me become a "Guru" here on Fixya....
regards...

I can't load Windows XP. Get this error with BLUE SCREEN of DEATH IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL I had windows 7 on it but not all of my devices would work. Win-7 loaded with no problem . So I put XP in format and...


Good day!That error used to be a non compatible with the hardware.I don't know this board,but i'll based my idea on your trouble..Mostly new hardwares today don't accept XP OS..Try to look the Motherboard's features..see if it is compatible with XP..

Ask me if you still don't get what I mean..

I need to setup a dual boot computer. I have 2 hard drives each has an os I need the option to select at startup


Try Install KDE on your desktop, I think its much better than gnome for booting setup. There's another way which one you'd like to booth by striking the F8 key repeatedly on the restart or starting your PC and select the drive which drive you like to boot.Or you can configure it on your bios setup by hitting the del key and configure your boot priority.

I want install windows98 with xp in a computer


HEllo,
if you know the installation of winxp and win98 then it is possible to create a system with mercury board with 98 and xp.
firstly you install win xp in your computer. it's automatically located in c drive. then you intall win 98 custom install and then choose the installation directory of another drive like d. you use any boot manager to boot the pc with win98 and winxp. i don't tell you the installation process step by step. so don't mind.
thanking you
ramesh

Dual boot


hi wtm78 this is nichu,
it is impossible to install win 98 after installing xp,if you want to install win98 you must remove the winxp and then first install win98 and later you can install winxp,
basically it is impossible to install a lower order software when xp is already installed,in your case it is the same
there will be no things like dual boot or anything ,after booting your system asks whether you want to work with win98 or winxp.
be cool.

take care
bye and have a nice day.
