Hi!

In order to have a multi-boot system (i.e. 2 or more operating systems installed, so you can choose the one you want to use each time), you must have Windows XP installed FIRST, and then install Windows 7.

If it's ONLY Windows XP that you need, repartition the hard drive during the first setup step of Windows XP installation process.

Good luck,
Pelu.

Is adobe photoshop elements 3 compatible with windows 7


Hi,

I want to mention that Photoshop Elements 3 is not tested with the Windows 7.

If you have a windows 7 64 bit operating System then it may not even install in it. If you have a 32 bit Operating System then you can try to install it. However it may still not work even on a Windows 7 32 bit Operation System as it was not made and tested for this Operating System.


There is a probability that if you install the Windows XP mode on you Windows 7 operating system then it may work.
Check more about installing Windows XP mode here:

How do i install a software for windows xp on my windows 7


Most of the softwares for Microsoft Windows XP are compatible with latest Operating Systems (OS) of the same company. So you can try to install the software through the installer.
If the installation fails with error you should understand what is the reason.
If the reason is incompetibility with the OS you may consider to install Windows XP Mode on your Windows 7. You can download Windows XP Mode from the Microsoft site. This is the link to the page. You should choose the options from the drop-down menus according your system (32 bit or 64 bit).
Then you will have the oportunity to download Windows XP Mode and Virtual PC.
After installing these softwares and restarting the computer, you could enter Windows XP mode and install your XP based software. I hope this helps you. Good luck!

Not sure what you have done so far. You need to divide your hard drive into two sections. Install XP first on to one section. Then use a program to manage your computer start up, the one I use is called Easy BCD this is a free program and works great. Once you cut your hard drive and install XP make a copy of your start up partition. Install the Easy BCD program and make a back up again. Then Install Win 7. Then on the Win7 side install the Easy BDC program and set up the menu choices. I run a 3 way boot with XP and Ubuntu. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

Hi,

You cannot downgrade Windows 7 from Windows XP by not reformatting the hard drive. You need to Remove Windows 7 first, before installing Windows XP Operating System. In order to use the Windows XP CD to fully reformat the Hard drive, follow the steps on the link below.

Can i install windows-xp on my laptop which is currently working on windows-7 and use both of them.


Hi,
Yes you can install windows xp in windows 7.
Windows XP Mode is a virtual PC image of Windows XP Service Pack 3 that could be run on Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate versions. Applications installed into Windows XP Mode could be run in Desktop Mode or Seamless Mode. In Seamless Mode, applications appear to run natively within Windows 7, but they are actually running inside the Windows XP virtual machine. Windows XP Mode might also provide additional integration that traditional Virtual PC images might not be giving. Applications installed on the Windows XP image could be exposed to the Windows 7 Start menu. Applications run in seamless mode is having automatic access to the Windows 7 known folders like Documents, Pictures, Desktop, Music, etc. Also the Cut-and-paste is enabled between native Windows 7 applications and those running in Windows XP Mode. Applications running in Windows XP Mode might also access your Windows 7 network connection and USB devices.

Windows xp is not instaling in my system


I presume you're trying to set up a dual boot system with XP and Win 7, you have to start by installing XP first then install win 7 on another partition, you can't install 7 first.

If you're getting rid of Win 7 in favour of XP just boot from XP disc and delete existing partition that has 7 on it and then install XP
