Hello,

Try this 1

If you are looking for the dual boot (Windows XP and Windows 7) then

I hope you are not trying to install the Windows 7 from Windows XP by opening

the Windows 7 DVD and clicking on the Setup file.

Place the Windows 7 DVD in the DVD-Drive and boot from it.

[Note : If it failed to boot then make sure that the first boot device is set to

DVD-Drive.]

When "Press any key to boot from the Windows 7 installation DVD" appears,

press any key to start booting from installation disc.

Then follow the on-screen instructions.

When the partitions appears, select the partition where you want to install the

Windows 7 and follow the onscreen instructions.

[Note : If Windows XP is installed in C-Drive then select any other drive apart from

C-Drive]

Good Luck
