I'm really having fits trying to dual boot a friends computer with xp home SP3 after windows 7 pro 64 bit. I slipstreamed all the drivers for his board (asus P8Z77 V LK) into the disc and xp disc gets to the point of choosing the
partition to install on. The partition created using windows 7 does not show up. Just shows C disk (corsair nuetron ssd) as one partition having the entire space. None of the commands to create or delete the partition work. Booting back into 7 and going to disk manager shows the disk to be correct : 100 MB system reserved, then the partition for windows 7 as "C", then the 20GB partition XP as "D". I have read that windows XP needs the partition to be "active" in order to install but don't know if this is true. At this time the "D" partition is not active, the "C" partition is. Tried to do this with all other drives (two 1TB western digital HDD) disconnected but that didn't work either. Any help would be appreciated. Posted this at the end of the tutorial thread but since it's last comment was from 2008 I thought perhaps this was the right way to do this, if not please let me know.
