win xp, win 7
Scanner that I cannot get installed in Windows 7

A reminder: Started with XP, added Win7 on new HDD.

Mostly things are working out, but I have one remaining hardware problem: a scanner that I can not get installed in Win7. I've seen some reference to running that scanner on XP inside of Windows 7. Is that what I need to do?

Is there a specific tutorial you recommend for that? (or for what else I should do if it isn't running XP inside of W7.)

There are other glitches with W7: lockups, poor audio playback with Foobar, and Norton Internet Security has made me uninstall and reinstall twice already. I did the "repair" from the Win 7 64 installation disc just a few minutes ago, and it found and repaired something so maybe some of these things are fixed. I don't think they pertain to dual booting, so I'll look in Win7 tutorials/threads if they persist.

But first things first: hardware that can not be installed in Win7 64 (or 32) but can with XP32
