now i’m trying to create dualboot for Vista64 & XP32.
i’ve shrink the drive, and now i have following drives
C: = vista installed drive
D: = still blank (40Gb) <==planned to install XP on it
E: = blank (1Gb) <==the tutorial suggest me to make small partition to switch file between OSs
F: = DVD rom
G: = SD/MMC
H: = memory stick
so i restart my computer, boot the XP installer, & i got this (attached) 88)
(and i’ve retried several times with the same result)
If you want to dual boot XP vs Vista, then all you need to do, is wipe out all your HDD & Partition (just to make sure it was clean enough from your p0rn & smiley’s collections; your choice).
Split your HDD into 2 with a helluva razor sharp kitchen’s knife or use a partition manager.
Let the XP have the first spot and set the space as necessary (ie; if you want to use your XP just to run some wicked 16 bit apps, then 8 or 10 GB will do fine).
After you have your XP run smooth, then load up your Vista DVD, and start the installation from within your XP.
hint: advanced = sh*t brick solution ;D
i’ve read that,it’s one of the articles i googled yesterday.
huh ??? i thought you’re getting your bon tattoed in bali ???
well, i found 2 tutorials, 1 is about how to setup dual boot vista+xp & the other one = xp+vista.
since my holistic solution worked like a charm (more info here ;D) i had to spent 4-5 hours yesterday using recovery drive.
now you want me to wipe it out? >:(
from what i read, there are 2 logical solutions for this (other than sacrificing a goat 88)), i should try them first:
download the SATA controller driver, slipstream the driver into Nlited XP installer
problem: can’t find the driver (i found the .exe driver installer, but the Nlite ask for .inf driver ???)
use XP SP3
haven’t tried the latter
well, those 2 are the solutions, assuming the stop error 0x0000007B issue is caused by SATA controller driver.
there are some other solutions about changing the SATA,IDE, ATA (not sure) setting on BIOS setting (dell & hp laptop),but i can’t find the same setting on vaio BIOS setting 88)
I’m having my breakfast outside of this lovely bungalow with my daughters, and remote dialing my server at home (checking for some documents & to see how’s your new VAIO works).
I guess you’re just in ‘luck’ for some more deep OS adventure.
Congratulations for blowing out your first Vista ;D
Meanwhile, I’m going for some nice morning swimming and relaxation.
Here comes my mother in law.
She hates my computer thing…
Ok, no worries. I just find it curious that you’re having a problem installing XP. I have XP installled on a couple of machines here and they both have SATA II drives. The DVDs are also SATA but although I’ve nLited in the past, I now just do a basic install from the original CD or an ISO. My copy of XP is pre service packs and it always finds the drives without the need for any additional drivers.
the dualboot on VAIO link is error, i’ve got other link with similar info like those two.
and i asked my friend, he said he had a same BSOD before when installing XP & using SP3 can solve the problem :-TU
Find and download it. ;D
It works perfect.
Install XP to D:
Your system will be booted to XP.(You can’t boot to vista at this time, because
a bootloader for vista has been deleted)
Install VistaBootPRO in XP.
1.choose Reinstall the Vista bootloader.
3.now vista booterloader is recovered that deleted by installing XP.
4.go to Manage OS entries.
5.if there is ‘Microsoft Windows XP’, delete it.(becuase
you need to make new one)
6.check ‘Add new operationg system entry’
7.check OS Type ‘windows Legacy’
8.OS name to ‘Microsoft Windows Xp’
9.now you need to make Drive Letter.
Drive letter for Vista: C
Drive letter for Xp: C
11.now you will see dual boot menu.
easy and quick huh? ;D ;D ;D
This is very important.
Do not make drive letter to actual partition!
Make them all ‘C’ like above!
If you don’t?
You will burn your pc.
