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

The XP target partition needs to be long formatted from the XP installer during install.

As stated, rightclick on flash stick in Computer, select format, FAT32, uncheck quick format.

Then rewrite ISO using Ultra without formatting there.

If the flash stick cannot be made bootable using UltraISO, try one other method that is widely reported to work and looks pretty simple:

Yeah, I got the same error, but I think I am missing the txtsetup.sif file. I didn't want to say this, but your XP disc didn't fail you right? I was wondering if you can upload the file, so that I can replace it.

I located the txtsetup.sif file on mine. It's there alright, but how can I check to see if it's corrupted or not?

Can't upload it here. Did you search the I386 file?

Well I searched for it manually. I didn't search with the searchbar.

Man.... what about messages? Use mediafire or something.... I need to replace that file, it's what the error is about. I doubt using any other method can help out.

I have the files, but they're probably corrupted.

U get the file?

I am referring to one of the top dogs on this forum, who taught me most of what I know here. He is in this thread right now. Prepare to be dazzled with the one and only solution (if there is one).
