OK.. after 2 days of research & asking for answers. I finally solved the problem. I can already boot Windows XP and Windows 7 on my dell inspiron 1440 Laptop. I already solved the BSOD on Windows 7. Just switch the ATA to ARCHI to Load the Windows 7. To Load Windows XP switch ARCHI to ATA mode. But I hope has DELL has an easy way out of this, so that i don't have to switch ATA to ACHI ,vice-versa. For those who help me, THANK YOU.. This Forum is very useful Now I can sLeep well.. Thanks everyone.. CASE CLOSED !!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Hi All,

Please let me know, how did you install windows xp on your laptop. I have got dell inspiron 15R with windows 7 home basic 64 bit. When I try to boot windows xp bootable cd, it is not at all booting from cd. It is directly going into windows 7. I tried to set bios settings by pressing F8 but i could not find any thing boot from option.

If anybody has any idea please provide me. I am really struggling to instal windws xp.

You may need to add the SATA drivers to XP for it to install correctly; be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.
