Windows 7: Need help with XP system after Win 7 install

29 Jan 2010   #11

Windows 7 x64

I just did 2 test runs using XP SP3 from a P4 system to a Core 2 duo system using an SP2 CD.

It worked fine both times. The fact the final result was an SP2 install may be relevant if you installed things under SP3.

The only problem I had was a blue screen when I had set the SATA controller set to AHCI instead of IDE, which should be expected. If it does go into safe mode, maybe you could change something using msconfig.exe, like using basic video for the install.
