Dual Boot Windows XP Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using a dual boot system with windows xp professional sp3 (with automatic updates) and Widows 7 release candidade.
    The windows 7 was used to test programs running with windows xp.
    According to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971767/nl every 2 hours the system is running, there will be a "stop" message on the status bar.
    Because I only boot the xp system from now on, this message does not show up.
    In xp this will result in a hangup of the system.
    To avoid the above suggestion I did the following and hopefully this hangup is gone:
    fixmbr
    fixboot
    format windows 7 partition
