Hello and welcome to the forums.

I believe this tutorial may be of use Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP.

Where exactly does the blue screen appear, during XP installation or...?

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask and post back with any results.

Are you booting the XP CD or running it from Windows 7? Try both.
