Hello,
I have Gateway Windows Vista 64 Bit with SP1 and i want to install Win XP 32 bit to make it a dual boot with Windows Vista already installed. My disk has two partitions. When i tried to boot from XP bootable CD, i'm gettin windows famous Blue Screen Error "If you are getting this error for the first time, try shut down ur machine and restart again or contact system administrator. Check your system has virus or not, run CHKDSK /F. and some boolean values after that"

Can someone help? how to install Win XP over Win Vista 64bit and make a dual boot.

Thanks,
Vick

Im not sure but i dont know if you can do that with a 64 bit machine, i think you could only do it on a 32 bit machine, i dont think xp is compatible with a 64 bit machine. Im amn't sure though but i would look into it as a possibility
