Got a windows xp disk (x32), but I get a blue screen error when a couple of minutes into the blue loading screen. I can't install it from the current OS (windows 7) because the install windows xp is ghosted out. It's a newish laptop, any ideas what it is ?

Cant downgrade from inside windows 7. You need to boot from the disk.

I was under the impression that you can't install XP as a 2nd operating system from Windows 7 which is why ur getting a blue screen.

You can do it the other way around though ....XP then win 7.:thumbsup:

I'm willing to format the drive I just don't want to format the drive then it still goes blue screen and It turns out to be a hardware issue. Anybody know whether the hardware is compatible with windows XP ?

you can. it just overwrites the boot loader so you can only boot xp meaning you have to install the win 7 boot loader again.

This was right, thanks
Trouble is I now cannot boot to the original windows 7 and do not have the drivers for my wireless adapter. How do I check what adapter is present on an identical laptop ?

Best bet is to start from fresh, Full format and just install XP now you know its not a hardware problem.

I take it wireless card is internal? Driver should be available from laptop manufacturers website.

You mean X86 and X64?

You'll probs have to re-install win 7 or repair install at least.


No couldn't see a x64 xp, so I meant x32. I'll download windows 7 tonight, I have a genuine key for home premium only none of the torrents are anything but ultimate
