Dual Boot Xp And Vista On A Dual Sata Raid Rigg

I have XP as the primary. I have the XP install disk and the ubuntu install disk, there is no data currently on the machine, so I am happy to reformat it. I tried to use my old xp sp2 disc but the section where u select install was shaded out..ergo..cant select it. is it better or worse to this, in a dual boot with XP home? Source

HOw do I start the installation? Sounds like something wrong with the file system or hard drive itself.

Commit these actions. And if you still have the ISO image, try emulating it instead of burning it. Secondly, forgive me for I am still a little bit of a newbie to dual booting, I would like to get rid of VISTA Build 5744. And stops there.

None of the drivers, configs etc for any of the new components were installed into the new rig. anybody got any suggestions. I gave it drive letter V: and labeled it Vista. I think you should install from XP again, since I've always done that and it's always been successful.

Be sure you know the downside and also if you posted here on purpose some won't reply if the answer was already given in the discussion. LiquidWeb I just formatted the 32 bit installation and the boot manager remained. Ask !

  • For those of you with a DVD, it's quite straight forward.
  • The part that supprised me was that the OS reassigned drive letter [C:] to the 80gb HD making all its registry entries correct and drive letter [K:] to the 320gb HD
  • I have decided to rather wait until Vista is more stable and tried to uninstall Vista but with no luck.

by R. You can find the GUID by running "bcdedit /enum all". If you installed SP1 or SP2, this would be automatically fixed. http://webtrekkie.com/dual-boot/dual-boot-windows-xp-vista-boot-menu-issues.php You may have to register before you can post: click the register link above to proceed.

By just creating a boot option pointing to your old hard drive won't work because you don't have the legacy (XP) bootloader to boot XP. is there any way i can keep vista and fix the internet? I've got an extra 80gb HD I'm not using for anything.

Im currently formatting my hard drive. I have 2 HDD. 1st HDD is IDE with 2 partition, 1 primary and active and size 40 GB, and the second partition is logical.

Your computer sounds very symtom like of adaware infection which would explain the slowness.

You should allocate at least 10GB of space to your new partition, as Vista requires approximately 6-7GB depending on your configuration. Check This Out The OS set the HD drive letter to [C:].

Windows could not start because of a computer disk hardware configureation problem. I have a friend with somewhat of a different situation. It would initially run a disk check and then reboot and reboot.
