Please, who can explain why they say that it is impossible to install Windows xp after Windows 7 was installed. The xp image was not created. They say that she can not read 7. Is that so? I have Win 7 worth it. I want to put xp. She then put, but hangs heavily.
There is one problem - you can lose the 7-ku (in the sense you can not boot into it) - because in 7-ke, a different boot loader is used. Therefore, it is recommended to put first XP then 7. If the 7-ka is no longer needed. It is advisable to reformat the installation partitions ... (perhaps - re-create, because 7-ka creates an additional boot partition of 100MB which XP is not needed ...)
You can’t run the XP installation from Win 7, but installing via BIOS doesn’t matter what you have there, 7, 9, 9, Lynkus, Fryah, Mac doesn’t matter, the bootloader does its job - the installer starts from the right place (CD, Flash ...) Then the installation itself will offer you a disk where you can put the system, preferably format it, and then everything will be ok.
Better yet, put XP on a virtual machine - there is such a mode Windows XP Mode - it works very fast and takes up as many hard drives as needed
And I made it a lot easier ... Windows7 starts and then WindowsXP or vice versa! !!! And with Windows7 you need to edit the boot file with the help of EasyBCD 2.0 ... elementary program with an intuitive interface !!!
Well, as far as I know, this story went about whist, when it appeared and began to be massively installed on computers and laptops. Many people were somehow not very happy about this and tried to install their favorite and familiar pirated build of Windows XP instead of licensed whists =)
And instead of IDE-drives they started to install SATA at the same time, for which there was no driver in the standard Windows XP installer and, accordingly, she did not see the disk. People, without thinking twice, explained it with magic and with the fact that Vista was harmful, evil, a witch and burn it, because it prevents to put XP.
XP doesn’t care enough what was in front of it) And if the drivers are OK (and now it’s not a fact - someone for the new equipment doesn’t make drivers for XP), then everything will be fine and it will work.
