Windows 7: 7 kills setup of XP

23 Apr 2012   #11

7 x64

What you should do is install XP in a virtual Machine. No need to repartition the drive. No need to boot to one OS or the other. Run 7 as the native, Host, OS and XP as a VM at the same time.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, SP 1

I ran the ISO boot option in EasyBCD, it booted the XP ISO, but then I got a BSOD, the 0x0000007B one. I googled for it, it seems the problem is the SATA drivers! I saw a guide and changed the "RAID Auto/AHCI" to "RAID Auto/Compatibility" in BIOS, but still I got the same BSOD. It says:

0x0000007B (0xF78D2524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

Then I got the SATA drivers from here

First I tried loading them from the USB drive, but they only load from a floppy disk, and even my desktop doesn't have that. So I slipstreamed them into the setup files using nlite, made an ISO, and booted from that (using EasyBCD) but I still get the BSOD. Will it be the same if I boot from the DVD? If so, then it'll be impossible to install XP.

I don't want to run it in VMWare, I want to run XP directly. Then it'll use less resources and I can play some games as well.

Edit 2: Looks like I've got the wrong drivers for the model I have. There's a different driver for all the different models?

How many times do we have to advise you to boot from CD, and how many times do you completely ignore the advice?

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, SP 1

To boot from CD, I'd have to burn one first, and I don't want to waste a CD when I might face a BSOD, now that the ISO is facing this problem. But I'll do it, now that there's no other way out.

I found the correct drivers but even then I got a BSOD...

Booted from the CD, the installation finished successfully. Then got the dual boot working as well. There's both XP and 7 installed now!

Any reason why the same setup was giving a BSOD when run from the ISO?

Thanks a lot everyone for your replies.
