Help comments are in your other post: no able to install 7 on my pc

It is also hard to help when your replies are posted as Profile and Rep comments. Please use only the post above so we can help you get this installed as dual boot which should work.

And thank you for the rep.

Can you identify the motherboard of your PC? This Code 5 error seems to be associated with certain older motherboards from MSI and one other manufacturer whose name escapes me. There is a workaround which I'll try to find for you.
