Windows 7: XP drivers for dual boot Win 7 and XP

25 Jan 2013   #31

Why would you replace the best OS ever with a dead OS that has no support and won't even install on most modern hardware?

If you have a Recovery partition that still works then boot it to reinstall Win7, or do the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 and virtualize XP as advised repeatedly.

If you've already removed Win7 and it's Recovery partition, or the Recovery partition does not boot anyway, then wipe the HD first with Diskpart Clean Command to try XP install.

If error continues then try another XP installer for your licensed version - OEM or retail sku.

I resolved this issue by installing XP on the C: partition and removing Win7 from the system. Since this is a brand new quad core system, XP MUST be installed first for the dual boot. I hope this information helps anyone who tries to downgrade a new computer. XP Pro did not install on the system due to the C: partition. I also was able to get the drivers for the system.

error

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

<Windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe.

This error has many articles but my experience clearly shows, the C: partition should be used to re-install XP.
Thank you for all of the information on this issue. I decided just to keep XP on the system and not perform dual boot.
