Windows 7: Partition query

27 Jul 2011   #11

windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

It seems that whichever way I go I end up with a BSOD.

So I think I will call it a day on this one.

Thanx for all the help people.

OK, that's your choice.

Sorry you didn't get the outcome you wanted, but thanks for letting us know anyway.

If you try again later, get yourself a second internal drive and put XP on that after disconnecting your Win 7 drive first.

Reconnect the Win 7 drive when you're done and you should be good to go.

Yes I have been looking for a cheap internal drive and found one on ebay (80gig) for £15 so will probably go down that road.

You're very welcome.
