Windows 7: Error installing dual boot windows 8 with windows 7

That's the 32gb chip for HD caching, correct? Is hardware accelerations enabled?

Your previous installation was not from bootable flash stick, so it's integrity must be assured. How did you write it?

The partition is also very small, I'd use Partition Wizard CD to resize it to 50 gb at least.

Yes, and hardware accelerations enabled..
I wrote the installation to usb using windows 7 usb/dvd download tool.. I think the problem is the way i wrote to usb.. Any other software to write it?

Yeah, i can resize the partition if i have to..
One other thing, if i messed up with the windows 8 installation, and get into the bsod loop, how can i get boot back to windows 7? Previously, i ran the hp recovery and factory reset.. Is there any other way?

thanks again...

ok, i think i have another clue..
I'm testing my windows recovery usb, and found out that it also can't detect my OS (windows 7)..
The operating system is empty, altough i have windows 7 installed and working perfectly.. System restore also not working even i have enable it and create restore point before..

Now, i'm more confused than ever, any suggestion?

PS : My windows 7 is fine, just testing the recovery usb..

Write the latest Win8 ISO to stick using Universal USB Installer.

How did you write the Repair CD to flash stick? Try running a few Startup Repairs from System Recovery Options on F8 Advanced Boot options menu to see if it finds any problems.

Ive never met a tech enthusiast who will run the bloated HP factory preinstall, the worst load of crapware and duplicate utilties in the industry throttling Win7 from its native instantaneous state. Most all will Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

sorry for the late reply, but i solved it by disabling intel SRT..
Apparently, SRT was the problem at the first place..

Thanks !!
