I had to give up on trying to install XP for dual booting. Just couldn't seem to make an nLite-generated install CD (with slipstreamed SATA drivers) that would work.
So I tried your suggestion of Windows XP Mode and it worked right off the bat. Thanks for the suggestion; I'd never heard of it until you replied. I think it will serve my needs nicely; of course, it doesn't help those that don't meet it's requirements.
Anyway, thanks. John Hixson
