I am endeavouring to create a dual boot sytem on my Win 7 PC with WinXP. I have tried this tutorial: SATA Drivers - Load in Windows XP Setup on Dual Boot
but as I do not have a floppy drive installed I am stumpted. I do not have a Manufacturers Device CD.
I have been going round and round in circles trying to locate the correct XP Sata driver
. Some threads suggest that the driver can be found by looking into the Motherboard drivers
but the only one I can find relates to the actual WD hard drive. This from the Dell website is an exe file and upon opening the file there is no .inf file.
Other threads suggest that it is not practical to try to install XP on a PC with Win 7 installed but that one should install XP first then Win 7.
Am I wasting my time?
PS No rush at all with this as my time is very limited. I am looking after my wife who has just come out of Hospital having broken her hip a few weeks ago so I may not reply to a response very quickly!
