I think you misunderstand me. I am trying to make dual boot with win xp and win7 is preinstalled.
New to site,very nice!


I am running into a problem trying to add WindowsXP. I get through the partioning OK. But when I try to install WinXP after the intial setup by windows I get a Blue-Screen with the following message:
Stop: 0X0000007E (0X0000005, 0XF78D1EA0, 0XF78D1B9C)
acpi.sys-Address F73B9D66 base at F73AE000, Date Stamp 480252b1
I never get to the actual windows setup.

I have problem like above. So do I have to choose sata driver for xp or win 7? There is no data drivers in hp websites.Sorry but I am a new bee,May be its very stupid questions but thanks a lot.
