Installing within Windows might overwrite 7. Depends on what version of 8 you have. You could try from boot up and choose / create a new partition, but it may require you to configure boot loader in order to dual boot.

Sony Vaio won't wake


There are a lot of issues with drivers based on Windows 8 at the moment. I've also been playing a lot with it lately and have the same issue with my Dell laptop, Intel chipset. My only recommendation is to put Windows 7 back on and wait until late-October when all the manufacturers start releasing compatible drivers.

Hello, i have sony vaio VPCEB46FG laptop & i have


Hi,

You're getting what's known as the 'blue screen of death' as some may call it.
This happens for various reasons, but usually occurs when Windows encounters a conflict with a hardware component in your laptop. When you try to install XP, are you doing so as a secondary operating system (dual OS boot) or are you trying to install it over Windows 7?
If you are installing XP over Windows 7, try doing a full format during setup instead of the usual quick setup. This may take some time, possibly requiring you to format the hard drive overnight but it may well solve any 'blue screen' issues you're experiencing.

Let me know if I can assist any further.

Best wishes,
Graemevm
