, thank you, it has enabled to get further than I have so far!
I have had a browse through this thread and cant find anything related to this problem so I am hoping someone can help please.
I have a Netbook which I have upgraded from XP Home to Win 7. & works great except I want to play Sacred/Diablo II on it and for the life of me I cant get Sacred to run under Win 7. So I am trying to setup a dual boot with XP Home on it.
I have partitioned my drive, and set the new partition to Primary (the Win 7 partition is Active) where I want to install Win XP.
I boot from the CD and it starts setup and then terminates in a blue screen of death completewith code and with the message Windows Setup has shutdown to protect your system from damage. The system then has to be hard reset to restart it.
I have a genuine copy of XP Home Upgrade and a genuine copy of Win 7 upgrade and I have tried the various fixes on the Net for running Sacred/Diablo II (fully patched, run in 256 colours, admin & XP mode etc) so I am now going down the dual boot path but I cant even get this to work.
Can someone please help as all I really love my hack n slash games and the nlow spec Netbook seemed an ideal machine for them.
PS I have an Acer Aspire Netbook running a 1.6 Atom and 1gb RAM.
