Windows 7 and dual boot with xp error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I recently acquired a Dell computer with windows 7 preinstalled. I want to install XP as a dual boot. I partioned the hard disk and started the computer, booting from CD to install XP on the new partioned.

    Windows setup started but reported the following:

    " Windows has detected an error and has shutdown. If you installed new harddrrive....."


    I am unable to install xp and suggestions as to how I can overcome this would be appreciated
