Installing dual-boot windows xp on windows 7 issues

Last week i try to instal a dual-boot system windows xp on windows 7 installed ,i couldn't shrink the disk c: from manage (it said something about defragmentation, i have 2 disk drives with no partitions
,the disk c: it has 74.5 with 40 GB free) to create a new partition with 20 GB ,i know that easeus partition will help me because i did do this once(but was dual boot windows 7 on a windows xp installed)
i made one partition(with 20 gb from C: with easeus partition then
i restart my computer and easeus made his proces after a moment -> restart and then i should put the windows in the dvd-rom but the system was blocked like this http://img695.yfrog.com/img695/2573/86486920.jpg del/tab was not working
-> restart again but this time i push del fast to go to bios but i didn't go to bios it made his usualy components verification (everything was ok) and then was blocked there.

I made my decision to go to a friend to format my hard drive(+instal athe windows on the disk) and everything was ok on his pc so... to explain i record my problem now( my english sucks).

On my pc it remains the same probl. but i could reinstal my windows (windows xp) and i have this problem on my startup MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service the first half is a delay the last half is when i restart to go to bios.

Welcome!

I don't really understand your problem, but try pressing F11 during the POST. The manually select your drive from the resulting window.

Hope this helps,

Try running the Windows 7 DVD from XP.

If you dont' want XP, then install Windows 7 over XP.

If you want to keep XP in a dual boot, make another partition to install Windows 7 from the XP desktop.

Could you please explain your problem in words? It is hard to see what is going on in the video.

How is that blocked? What exactly are you trying to do that it won't let you?

We can work on the delays later.
