Your Windows 7 install is normal?

Looks like it is using the wrong encoding, or a problem with language.

Did you make a second partition in Win7 Disk Management to install XP?

Then booted XP CD to install there? When exactly does the blue screen error occur?

Try deleting the formatting on XP partition from Win7 Disk Mgmt, then let XP installer format it NTFS
