Your Windows 7 install is normal?

Looks like it is using the wrong encoding, or a problem with language.

Untill July 2009 i had vista x64.
A month ago i installed 7 x64 but not a clean install, i just upgraded my HP laptop to 7 because i didnt want to lose my 500GB files!

Did you make a second partition in Windows 7 Disk Management to install XP?

Then booted XP CD to install there? When exactly does the blue screen error occur?

Try deleting the formatting on XP partition from Windows 7 Disk Mgmt, then let XP installer format it NTFS

Yes i created a new partition.
The blue screen occurs when the insallation finishes loading the nessecary files, the installation does not even start...
