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.

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

I have want to setup Windows xp and windows 7 together .Meaning when start up computer have : Windows xp Windows 7 I try to setup two windows ,but i setup windows xp lost windows 7 and setup windows 7...


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.

I have replaced my windows xp with windows 7 and my tigerwoods 06 won't play. and it did with windowds xp.


Download the FREE Windows 7 XP Mode, install it, then reinstall your software in XP Mode following the XP Mode Application Instructions. Another alternative is to use the FREE XP mode virtual machine under Windows 7. You can then load software that is compatible with XP But not Windows 7 in the XP virtual machine.

Works excellently

How to set up dual boot for two hard drives?


My freind, you can boot from two hdd inside the same computer. You can only boot from the primary HDD. What you need to do is install both Windows 7 and XP on the primary hdd in different partitions. Then when you boot the system it will give you the option for booting to both XP and 7. You dont even need the secondary hdd unless you are looking to have more storage space.

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 :-

I bought a acer aspire 5542g with window 7 on it


You will have to boot of the XP install disk and reformat a FULL NTFS format, first, that will enable you to wipe the drive and install XP. To save an email, or any file to a flash drive, simply copy/paste or drag and drop onto the drive, the drive must be Formatted first, format FAT32. OR when asked for location to save, point it to the flash drive as normally done.
