Hi Friend,

I live a dual (or even triple) boot life on my machines. The one I'm writing from answers you in W7 but could have been in Vista Ultimate 64 Bit or XP. D; Drive isn't always the best choice for W7 when you're doing a dual boot. There are a great many functions for your DVD Burner that might depend on that drive letter staying named D:.

But you have choices by not being demanding on the W7 install at the beggining.

You're better off letting it install where it demands first, then renaming and organizing your drives after.

You do this in "Administrative Tools" in your Control Panel. Please look there, get a little familiar with that powerful area of your Windows options, and leave a comment on my post so I can get back to you if you need me to.

Microsoft and other "entities" provide new tools in Windows 7 for you to operate in "XP Mode". They haven't really perfected that yet and only offer it with W7 Pro and up.

I'm a busy guy but this is an issue I'm deeply interested in so will watch my "Comments" about this post and try to help you and others where I can.

I LOVE having each Windows system at my command and feel it's silly to only have one.

So, let W7 install on the drive it wants and get back to me after. Don't worry. You'll be fine. I am; on 4 different machines.

Kind Regards,

TheSelkie

I used twinkle cam successfully in windows xp. I have upgraded to windows 7. How do I get the driver or will anything work?


According to http://www.chicony.com.tw/download/di/driver.asp , the available drivers were written in 2004. Chicony has stopped supporting their cameras for newer Windows OS versions. I suspect they never made a 64-bit version of the driver for XP 64-bit.

If you had the 32-bit version of Windows 7, you might be able to use the compatibility mode to install the driver. To check your version, click on Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. Look for your Windows version and check if it says x64. If you see that in the description, you have the x64 bit version. Otherwise, right-click on the driver file from the above site (after extracting the files from the zip file). Choose Properties and the Compatibility tab. Check the box for always Run this program in the compatibility mode and set it to Windows XP in the drop-down menu. You may need to repeat this on the camera software as well.

If you have a 64-bit version Windows Home Premium, you may be better off upgrading to Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate. Then you can download and install Virtual PC and the XP mode, if your hardware can handle that software. This gives a virtual version of the 32-bit version XP that will run your camera. (The CPU needs to have virtualization support and it has to be enabled in the BIOS. Then you need enough memory to give the virtual XP at least 512MB -1GB of memory.) If you already have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, just use XP mode. Other virtual PC software exists but they require a licensed version of XP. (If you can find a valid license.) The only issue I've found is that files saved to the C: drive in one OS can't be accessed by the other OS. You have to transfer the files with an external drive, flash drive or burn the file to optical disc.

Dual boot systems with XP and Windows 7 can be set up if you have the XP license. Then pick the OS you need when you boot up the computer. This requires you to repartition the hard drive or have two bootable hard drives. Make sure to back up before partitioning the drive.

I wish that I had better news for you.

How to install xp on acer laptop


You'll need a windows xp operating system disk. If you already have windows xp on the Acer then check the Certificate of Authentication (COA) sticker to see what version of windows xp it has. You'll have to have an operating system disk with the same version otherwise once it asks for the key to activate windows it will not activate. For Example, if your COA says Windows XP Professional you cannot install a Windows XP Home version unless you purchased the Home Version and the COA Key has never been used.

Insert the disk in the drive and just follow the instructions. It's pretty straight forward and simple.

I can't recover my microsoft word program after upgrading to Windows 7 from XP, can you help?


When you installed Windows 7 as your O/S, you had to format your Hard drive.

If you saved XP it will be in Partion A or B on your hard drive.

But it will only be there if you saved it when installing WIN7.

Go to Start, Computer, and select drive C (usualy) there you will find your XP programmes.

GOOD LUCK.......

Hello, this is how I dual boot my laptop with windows xp and windows 7

1. Backup all you important files, use an external hard-disk if possible
2. Make sure you have two drives or partitions: usually drive C and D
3. Insert your xp cd, do a quick format of drive C and install
4. Boot into windows xp and format format drive D if necessary
5. Insert your windows 7 DVD and follow the prompts. When it asks you to upgrade or new install, choose new installation
6. When you are asked to choose a location choose drive D
7. Complete your windows 7 installation
8. Thats it, you can now install drivers and programs

When installation is complete you will see both os options: windows 7 and previous version of windows (i.e xp)

I have done this numerous times without the need for any other step or software. The only rule is to is to install xp first, then windows 7.

All the best

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.

How to convert window 7 to window xp?


Sorry for this answer but you cannot convert back Windows. You only are able to Upgrade but you can't rollback.
You have to backup all of your files on your system drive and then reboot your machine while you are inserted the Windows XP CD into your drive.
Boot with it and Format your system drive and then install Windows XP on that drive. But if you want to keep your 7, you can Install XP on a different drive and then by using Vista BootPro program, repair your boot because Vista and 7 are using a new version of boot manager and XP uses the older one.

Do I need Windows XP Mode?
Windows 7 has several built-in tools to help with program compatibility and Windows XP programs should be installed directly on Windows 7. Windows XP Mode runs many older Windows XP productivity programs and that are not natively compatible with Windows 7, thus helping realize cost savings and reduce possible operational downtime by extending the life of existing software. Visit the Windows 7 Compatibility Center to find software that works with Windows 7.
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/default.aspx

It's the best of both worlds: The new Windows XP Mode lets you run older Windows XP business software right on your Windows 7 desktop.

Designed primarily with small- and medium-sized businesses in mind, Windows XP Mode comes as a separate download and works only with Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise. Windows XP Mode also requires virtualization software such as Windows Virtual PC. Both are available free on the Microsoft website.

I'm trying to install winxp sp3 in my toshiba laptop which is already have win 7 but when setup complete downloading files this message appear "there is no hard drive in this computer"


Windows xp has 3 major updates - called sp1, sp2, and sp3. (Service packs) Windows 7 has only one out - therefore, you are trying to update a newer operating system with an update for a different version of Windows. Easiest thing to do is turn automatic updates on, and let Windows decide which updates it needs. This all asumes I understand you question correctly. If you are trying to install XP and erase Windows 7, your computer probably has a sata drive. Even with all the improvements in operating systems, you will need a driver to tell XP there is a drive, it is a sata drive. Unfortunately, this has to be done with a floppy drive. If you don't have a floppy drive, it gets complicated pretty real quick.
