Hello,

I need a windows xp SP2 32-Bit Version on my computer(windows7Pro 64-Bit),
So i made a new partition, and tried to install my windows xp SP 2 32-Bit, but everytime i boot from my cd i end up having blue screen so i guess my windows 7 is blocking the installation, is this even possible to install, if yes how should i do it :)?
I don't need the virtual xp mode (i really need a seperated windows xp SP2 32 bit partition)

Anyone could help?

Grtz

XP may be tripping over the SATA drive . . XP does not have native SATA drivers.

Installing XP on a SATA drive requires an additional step:

XP Help And Support: 108. How Do I Install Windows XP On A SATA Hard Drive

However, Most newer BIOS allow an Alternate method for SATA . . Go into the bios and check the "Sata Operation" setting,

change it to "Raid Autodetect/ATA if it is not already. Now try to install XP ( could be IDE Mode, Compatibility Mode or Legacy Mode - different BIOS use different terms )

some will say IDE instead of ATA)

If there are no such settings you'll need to slipstream the sata drivers on the XP CD, follow the instructions in this guide :

Hi Thanks, tried this by going to my bios, but i can't choose automatic detect, I can choose between AHCI(current choice), RAID and IDE, should i change it? ( haven't change it yet cause, if i changed it, it said: may cause you to reinstall your system)

Or is it possibler, i change it to IDE, then install XP, and everytime i need other OS, i just change it back?

Grtz.

My System


You can change the HDD mode to IDE, but when you boot into Windows 7 it will probably BSOD unless you reinstall Windows 7 with the HDD mode set to IDE.
You can also go to the computer/motherboard manufacturer and download the SATA driver for the board, and Slipstream it into your XP CD with nLite.

Ok, but my HDD is now set AHCI? So will it work if i sliptream SATA driver into my xp cd? And is IDE mode not slower then SATA or ACHI mode?

Why XP SP2?

Are you still getting BSODs?

What is the bugcheck (STOP error)?

John has a good point that I missed . . while you are slipstreaming, suggest you slipstream SP3 as well
