Hi

I have windows 7 installed on c drive.

I would like to dual boot with winxp.

I slipstreamed with AHCI driver.

When the windows xp installation menu loads to partition choosing page.

It shows my whole HDD as one partition.

The partition is like - Partition1 Unknown.

WinXP is not able to read the hard drive partition.

How can I fix this ?

Thanks and Regards

Hi Sevenxps,
have a read of this tutorial.
Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP

AND be carefull, your C drive is getting towards the low disk space limit, once it hits it you will encounter major problems. Move some data out of it now.
