Windows 7: Multi-boot/Dual-Boot Windows XP on Windows 7

Did you get a warning message from Nlite when you were slipstreaming about 64 bit?

The install may fail if there is a 64 bit driver in there.

Are you trying to boot from the installer now?

F6 isn't used when you slipstream drivers, in XP F6 is to add drivers into installer using floppy.

I don't think Nlite knew. Just a warning everytime you integrate drivers.

I haven't tried the installer yet. Should I try now?

If you think you slipstreamed a 64 bit driver, you need to retrace your steps to find it and remove it.

Does anything bad happen if the installation fails?

I think I'll try it like this first (Gateway says it's 32-bit anyways).

If it fails, then I'll pull it out.

It will bluescreen on a 64 bit driver, or hopefully spit it out.

Do you have a bootable installer?

Will it boot?

Yeah, it should boot. I did the same thing like yesterday, just integrating the drivers. BRB I'll start it up.

Oh yeah I got an error alright, but an error I think we wouldn't expect.

Looks like a slipstreaming error.

Make a new copy of XP files, slipstream in only that Storage Driver you found by name, then remake the bootable installer and try again.

Here is the exact name of storage driver: Multi-boot/Dual-Boot Windows XP on Windows 7

Ok.... which would that be?

I have the original XP files still (Good thing I made that).

The one I squared? So pretty much, I just put the two chipsets in and that's it?

Scrub that, just slipstream the storage controller driver,.
