Hi manugaara,

It should normally install Windows XP on a Windows 7 compatible computer. If a conflict happens during installation it should be a hardware compatibility issue. The error message you have reported (virus related message...) needs to be diagnosed. I can try helping you with this problem, please reply with the exact text of the error message that you get when you try to install the Windows XP Operating System.

Please do write back to us.
