Hello Rembo, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since you have Windows 7 Ultimate, you could install a fully licensed XP Mode to have XP running on a Windows Virtual Machine.

Windows XP Mode - Install and Setup


About the only disadvantage is that it may run a bit slower as a virtual machine versus a normal clean install or dual boot.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Installing XP on a relatively new computer is often a challenge and one that may prove futile. One problem, but not the only one, is the probable lack of drivers. The XP CD certainly won't have them as it was created years before your computer. The chances are quite high that the computer manufacturer won't have them either. Most manufacturers find it difficult to justify the considerable effort required to write drivers for what is essentially an obsolete OS.

If you really must run XP it best to do so on a virtual machine. This will be much easier. And as you have Windows 7 ultimate you can use XP mode with no added cost.

If you must dual boot be sure to check for driver availability first.

Even if you are able to install XP, why bother? M$ is ending support for XP in April, after which XP will become more and more vulnerable to infections as time passes.
