I'm trying to do a dual boot of my Windows XP SP3 and Windows 7.
I got 2 hard drive, I created a 34GB partition on my second drive for windows 7.
After starting the installation, the computer restart, and the installation continues. After the expanding files stage reaches 100%, the computer restarts again, and there is a message saying the installation failed, and the changes are being reverted.
When Windows XP starts again I get a message saying:
"This version of Windows could not be installed.
Your previous version of Windows has been restored, and you can continue to use it. Before trying to install this version of Windows again, check online to see if it is compatible with your computer. Go to the Microsoft website (www.microsoft.com
) and search for "upgrade advisor"."
I used the upgrade advisor, and my computer passed.
I tried installing both "Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate" and "Microsoft Windows 7 Professional Edition"
