Apologies had connection drop-out
Ref. installing XP on 7 to dual boot.
After having read most of the relevant info on various forums, sites and
magazines, I feel I have a rough idea what to do so set about trying,
"trying" becoming the operative.
I have a new Toshiba Satellite Pro C660 notebook pre-installed with 7 Pro
and would like to instal XP Pro.
The attempt to instal by booting from the disc failed after loading the
files, drivers and controllers with an error reporting loading "setup" was
stopped to prevent damage to computer.
After trying this a number of times with same result, I tried installing in
7 which resulted in an incompatability error that XP could not be loaded
because it was older than 7.
Error - It appears that Microsoft, or something, has installed a blocker to prevent earlier versions being installed.
Problem event name - ApphelpHardBlock

These two errors appear to be linked.
Anyone any thoughts how to get around this block?
Thanks and cheers,
