Windows 7: Dual boot BSOD

Dual boot BSOD

Hi,

I have an ACER 7535g in which the HDD recently failed.

I swapped it out for a Toshiba MK1246GSX, and clean installed Win 7 on it.

Since then ive been getting horrendous CPU spikes (really ever since I upgraded to win 7) and want to check if its Audiodg.exe, which seems the only extra process to suddenly spike during the freezes.

So I am trying to install a dual boot of XP pro as this service/process whatever was brought in on Vista.

Ive added Intel Sata drivers to an XP image using nlite, and created a partition. When I try and boot from the CD it goes through the process of loading everything from the CD then bluescreens just after showing Windows is starting.

I never get to the screen where I can see if it recognises the HDD.

I chaned the SATA BIOS setting to IDE and tried again and the same thing happened, except this time the laptop just turns itself off at the Windows is starting point.

To check everything was ok, I successfully installed a copy of win 7 32 on the partition with no problems.

Any ideas?

Could it be the wrong SATA drivers?

Cheers

Sounds more like a bad copy of WinXP CD, where did buy the CD?

With a good copy of WinXP try this way:

Yeah I thought that. But I have tried a couple of different disks. Neither mine.

I figured I can install it without a serial and at least get it working to test my theory, no?

Is there some easily run virtual environment I can test the images in on Win 7?

Intel(R)Rapid Storage Technology service IAStorDataMgrSvc.exe hogs the CPU, causes overheating and is not necessary. Stop the service. Either disable the service or set it to manual if it is running as automatic, and you will notice the improvement.

Well the xp image seems to want to install fine on a virtual machine.




Why would it work virtually but fail when I try and boot from a CD on the real machine?

Does this mean I can install it and run apps as if they were running on a physical XP machine?

Also, the virtual machine is offering 130gb unpartitioned space. Where is this from?

My physical HDD is 120Gb and partitioned. If I go ahead and install XP on this virtual machine will anything happen to my current 7 installs? Probably obvious, but I thought id check.

Looks to be OK.

Ok. So I tested the XP disks and successfully installed them on a virtual machine.

Is there any reason why they would fail physically then?

Physically installing XP? Try it to see. Create and full format the target partition using XP CD.

Post camera snaps or verbatim error messages.

Did you extract and load all storage drivers given, using Nlite text mode?
