Dual boot setup with XP and Windows 7 issues
Hi, I seem to have a problem with booting into the Windows XP Installation. I set my 1st device to my dvd-rom and tried 2 windows xp cds and not one will boot into the setup, its as if windows 7 blocks it out or something..... What I have setup at the moment is in this order:
1st Primary Master: Maxtor 60gb IDE
1st Primary Slave: Maxtor 15.gb IDE
2nd Primary Master: DVD-ROM
2nd Primary Slave: N/A
3rd Primary Master: Seagate 500gb SATA
3rd Primary Slave: N/A
I have Windows 7 32-Bit installed on the 3rd Master SATA Drive and I want to install Windows Xp on the 1st Primary Master 60gb IDE drive and when I boot up and I even have a boot loaded pop up right after the post screen and choose the dvd-rom the cd will not boot at all and yes the cds are bootable. Should I remove the SATA drive and install the xp then put back the SATA drive and somehow luck out with the boot process?
