Windows 7: Dual booting issue after installing Window XP

If that pc never came with XP installed, chances are there are no network drivers for it.

But you can always download and try an Intel driver or a Realtek driver, you can find them at download.com

Why are you even bothering to install XP on it ?

Download the licensed version of Win7 from Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 and burn to DVD or stick using tool provided.

Mark Win 7 System Reserved (preferred if you have it) or Win 7 partition Active in Disk Mgmt.

Boot disk to run Startup Repair 3 separate times or until Win7 boots.

Install EasyBCD to add XP.

In XP Try the Win7 32 bit network driver in Compatibility Mode. If it won't install or work google for the device's XP driver. If you need the make/model of Device then google the Driver Details Hardware ID in Device Manager driver tab

There are tutorials for each of these if needed but I am on my phone so cAnt drag them in.
