Before performing any operation, take the back up of boot.ini file in c: driver
Now use the dos bootable disk to format the partition in which your second copy of xp is installed let suppose d: drive,and after that when your windows xp start it will still show you both the copies of xp but select the one which is working and when you come to desktop .Go to Start > Run > type cmd and hit the enter key to start command prompt now use cd\ ,now you will come to c:\>..

I have a dual boot drive. C has windowds 7 and d has windows xp. Windows 7 on C works fine. However I can't boot into Window XP. I get an error saying the process has been stopped in order to protect...


Hello.

Just some thoughts:

1. Your Windows XP install (image ?) may be corrupt. Reinstall or capture another image.
2. Try installing Windows XP on C: and Windows 7 on D: That way the boot files are left for the older version.

Hope this helps.

How to make dual boot with window xp vista and windows 7


Dual booting Windows is the most challenging of the three options; however, making it work can be very rewarding. The process of creating a dual boot environment differs from Windows Vista to XP. Please follow the instructions according to which version of Windows you are currently using.
To run two operating systems on your computer, you will need to add a second partition. If you are not familiar with adding a partition, you can learn how in this section. Please note: each operating system will be able to see the other partition; thus, you can share files between them.

Dual Boot with window x and windows 7

You will need third party software to create a second partition for Windows 7; once you have created the partition, you can install Windows 7 on it.

Create a New Partition (Vista)

Click the Start button, right click Computer, and clickManage

In the left pane, click Disk Management

Now create a new partition by shrinking a previous volume so you can use the newly created space. Right click on the partition and clickShrink Volume.

Now right click the free space and click New Simple Volume…
Specify the volume size and click Next

Format the drive as NTFS, give it a label, and click Next

Power on your computer, insert the Windows 7 DVD, and restart your computer

Press the necessary key to initiate booting from your DVD (usually Esc or F12.)

Windows will now load the installation files.

Click Install now
Your computer will restart several times during the process as it configures itself and installs updates Be sure to leave the DVD in the drive and let Windows take care of itself.


Memory (RAM) – 1.25 GB required, 2 GB memory recommended.
Recommended 15 GB hard disk space per virtual Windows environment.
NB: Windows XP Mode is only available in Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 7 Professional, and Windows 7 Ultimate.

Can not install window xp


Your laptop probably has a SATA hard drive, windows XP only provides with PC's/laptops with a PATA hard drive.

You have to make up your mind what your really want to do.

1) Do you want a dual boot machine, working off XP and Win7?

Here's one web site:-

http://webtrickz.com/how-to-install-windows-xp-over-windows-7-in-a-dual-boot/

2) Do you want to replace Win7 with XP.

Here's a web site which covers that :-

Aspire 4520- Windows 7: Webcam does not work properly


windows 7 has a compatibility program built in for addressing those issues from the previous operating system(XP)

go to start and in the search window
type in compatibility
this program will help you by running the program to test its functionality,
it will bring up a list of programs and ask you to select the program your having issues with,
then it will give your operating systems and service packs to test against,
at the end it will ask you if you want to save these settings.Y/N?

If the program runs ok then save the settings and it should continue to work from there.

Shut down and restart should embed these settings ,
Test again for function,
If no luck run the program again

You say that your system is dual booting,why?
windows 7 leaves XP for dust,
remove xp its taking up valuable space on your hard drive and possibly interfering with your systems operations,

Normally the hard drive will only allow one operating system on it,even if you have partions.
Fine tuning is all your looking for so let us know your outcome thanks

If you do a windows back up
which system is it going to back up?
normally it will write over the last backup you made and the new one replaces it,

The game is made for 32 bit system, and mine is 64 bit. what to do?


You can try and run the game in XP compatibility mode in Vista or Window 7 64 bit. run it in 32bit compatibility in XP 64bit. This is set in the icon properties.

You can also use Virtual PC or dual boot to another OD install, since the 32 bit XP can run on a 64bit system perfectly well.

It's more work but I recommend the second solution over the first. Dual booting between out productivity software and out games is unfortunately the price to pay for a good gaming experience.
