Windows 7: dual boot windows 7 and xp installation problem

05 Dec 2011   #11

win7 and hope to get XP working
 
 

Hi all, I had the same problem, changed Sata in bios from AHCI ---> IDE and then i got Win XP in, the 2 OS is working just fine.... But I have to change the settings in Bois when I go from Windows 7 to Win XP and also the other way. Anyone that have any ideas how to get this fixed? I can live doing that but there have to be a way fixing this, ( I hope) Any help would be nice.

Thanks in advance

Appen

Is it coz i have to install drivers for my SATA hard drive so xp can recognise it or is problem something different???

btw my windows 7 is running normal without any problems and i am trying to install xp in another partition on my internal HDD.

thanks in advance
