    which version of nero? you are a bit unclear on what you are wanting to do. did you install nero to both vista and xp. a dual boot system requires the programs to be installed to both operating systems to function on each. also, the programs must be compatible with both os's. lastly, did you install the dvd burner driver or allow xp to do it? it should have been plug and play so no problem should have occurred.

How to install windows 7 on acer aspire 1640


Maybe the Vista drivers will do. If the Win & drivers are not listed, then more than likely the vista drives are compatible.

Installing windows xp into acer aspire m1640 need help the computer is falling to boot intead is showing a blue screen


The blue screen represents your Windows XP hasn't failed to install but has crashed and given you an error. The only way to fix this is to restore it to the original Windows and than try again. This mostly happends with boot leg copies of Windows XP and speaking from experience your better off buying the disc from the store so if this ever happends again your covered. If you DID buy the disc, then talk to your supplier and they should give you a new copy or install it for you.

Hope this helps ^^. Please don't forget to rate, Thanks

Cannot reinstall new os, seem my hard drive is not detected by os


I hope its not Vista os, because if the driver is not in its database, it does not accept any new driver. Install XP first and run the Vista Upgrade adviser from microsoft to check whether your PC hardware will run Vista....sodeep
