I am not able to view my Boot loader screen today after I installed Windows Xp Sp3 in another partition Earlier I could select either Windows Xp-sp2 Windows 7-32bit or Windows 7-64bit?
I had the exact same problem with my own computer. Apparently, Windows 7 doesn't work that well with Windows XP's boot loader (when dual booting). I solved the problem (well...sort of) by booting into my Windows 7 partition, Installing EasyBCD (http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1) and adding Windows XP to the boot loader again. The only thing is that when ever I boot into Xp (which is rare now) and then shut down, the Windows 7 boot loader is erased an I have to recover the computer with the Install DVD.
The Windows Boot Loader begin erased may or may not happen to you, but it may
Best of luck with it,

Well I sure hope so. I mean.. Microsoft spent a lot of time building an update for Windows XP before they came out with Vista.. I'm sure they made it so that it's... 'safe' to install it.. However, my computer can't install it. I get an error and not sure what it's from. And btw, when Microsoft com…es out with a new service pack.. it's normally a huge security fix. ( Full Answer )
Unless you've come from the future, there's no way you're installing PHP7 on anything. The latest version of PHP as of August 15, 2009 is 5.3.0.
Windows 7 is an upgrade of windows XP. I prefer windows XP mainly because im used to the software such as office 2003. Windows 7's office 2007 is much harder to use and takes a lot longer to get used to.. Comparing them both, i would say windows 7 is a downfall to Microsoft, they could of done a lo…t better with everything to be quite honest. Windows xp is the better option in my opinion.

Dual-booting Windows XP/Vista with 7 . 1) Download Windows 7 (see related links) 2) Partition your hard drive: In XP or Vista, go to the start menu, right click computer, and click Manage. Then click Disk Management, select the drive of which you want 7 installed in the bottom window. Assumi…ng you have unpartitioned space on this drive, right click the unpartitioned space and hit an entry that somewhat means create a new partition, I think it says "create simple volume". This partition should have atleast 20GB space available to it. 3.) Installing Windows 7 Burn the ISO you downloaded from the Microsoft website, and boot from the DVD or whatever drive you put the ISO on. Once at the setup screen, select your language and keyboard design/setup/thing. Once that's done, click custom, and BE CAREFUL, be sure to select the partition you made! Or this will wipe the other partition. Then simply install and wait several hours for it to finish, after it's done, you can boot up your computer and you will see an entry for Windows 7 on your boot screen. Now you can enjoy Windows 7 and still keep your XP OS :-) ( Full Answer )

It is not possible to install any Operating System next to another on the same partition. To dual-boot Windows 7 and Windows XP, first install Windows 7, and while in the partition manager, delete all partitions and create one for Windows 7 and one for Windows XP. Then install Windows 7 to it's part…ition. Then install XP to it's partition. You should now be able to boot either Operating System. Note: You must install XP after Windows 7 as the Windows 7 installation wizard would want to upgrade XP. WARNING: This will erase all of the data on your hard drive. Be sure to back up all of your files before installing anything. ( Full Answer )

No. Windows 7 can be installed on a Windows XP system, as long as it meets the minimum requirements. However, it must be a clean install; a direct upgrade from Windows XP is not possible.

I have notebook hp dv6500 and I am using windows xp sp2. fortunately I found all drivers for sp2 but this drivers will go windows xp sp3 or windows 7?
Since this has been posted under Windows 98, I presume the hardware is rather old. Usually, any drivers made specifically for Windows XP will work with all of the Service Packs. However, as regards to Windows 7, I highly doubt that the hardware will be supported. There are also probably specific dri…vers for Windows 7, as there usually are. ( Full Answer )
You need Windows XP installed before you can install Service Pack3. However, if your installation media already contains ServicePack 3, then you do not need to worry about installing it since itwill already be installed.

Start the computer and insert the XP installing CD, and when the process gets the partitions management section, delete the partition in which the W7 is installed, create a new one for the XP, and begin formating the XP.
If I understand your question correctly, you already have Windows 7 on your PC, and you also want to have Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows 98 running as well. The easiest way to do this would be to install a virtual machine and operating system. I recommend VMWare Player, which is a free vir…tualizing system which is compatible with just about any "guest" OS. For example, I have two flavors of Linux and Windows 98 running as virtual machines on my XP host machine. Other options would include the Sun VirtualBox, or Microsoft Virtual Server. I think VMWare Player is the easiest and most reliable. ( Full Answer )
You would need to buy Windows XP and install it on your hard drive to replace Windows 7. However there are programs that can run a simulator of XP while running Windows 7.
Certainly, however it would be advisable to check if your hardware and software are compatibility beforehand. You can find out how to do this on the Microsoft website.
I assume that you want to use hardware or software that needs XP for compatibility. I haven't tried to do what you are asking, but would advise the following instead, if you have a fairly fast machine and Windows 7 is working :- 1) Install VirtualBox (free, from Oracle), with Windows 7 as your …Host Operating System, and run it. 2) Use your XP installation disc to install XP as a Guest OS running in VirtualBox. This can be a bit fiddly, but is worth it for the ability to have the best of both worlds. You can also install as guests Linux, even older versions of Win, or even DOS (I've done that, to run old shareware games!) Bob Lindsay-Smith ( Full Answer )
Not directly they're two different operating systems XP being the older one windows 7 being the new one. But most Xp programs Are compatible With Windows Seven........ In fact I cant think of one that isn't. This is coming from a Basic Programmer. Both windows xp and windows 7 are independent from e…ach other. If you are asking will a windows XP program run on windows 7 then the answer will vary by program.

In what regard? I assume you mean in a network? At home we have a Vista 64bit, XP SP2 and brand new Windows 7 system running on one wireless network. No issues with sharing of files, LAN gaming, ... everything runs smoothly. However, we noticed that you achieve the best results when setting up the… network on the Vista machine.

Other than using more disc space to contain both operating systems, there are no inherent disadvantages.
That depends on what exactly you mean by that. You want to run Windows XP within Windows 7 you need to install Microsoft virtual machine. It's free. You want to replace Seven with XP, then you will need to format the volume where Seven is installed and then install XP.
If you have Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate you can install Windows XP Mode. Or if you want to downgrade you can do a clean install of Windows XP with an installation disk.
if your have windows 7, you have windows 7. if you have windows xp, you have windows xp. that's the difference.
Windows 7 will be installed as a separate operating system. So you can choose, on startup what one you want to use
It depends on many different things including but not limited to your budget, hardware, software you are planning on running (some of it is not compatible with windows 7). Overall windows 7 is more stable than windows xp but requires sufficiently higher resoureses.
although windows 7 is more powerful, has a higher marketing value, and tends to preferred by users it is possible to replace as long as you have the windows 7 and XP disks.

The installation procedure is very similar, but it's two different operating systems with two different results.
There's no "magical hidden" XP lurking under Windows 7. You could install both operating systems on the same computer and dual-boot, or alternatively (and much less complicated) just get a hypervisor program like Oracle's VirtualBox or Microsoft's own VirtualPC (both of these are free, though you'll… have to have a legitimate copy of XP to install) and install XP on the virtual machine.

You can't just do that unless the underlying hardware of yourcomputer is 64 bit. The 64 bit version of Windows XP released onApril 25, 2005 will not run on a 32 bit computer. If your computer is 64 bit then you can move to 64 bit XP but youwould need to purchase this from somewhere. I am not sure bu…t I donot think Microsoft supports or sells this any more. If you are having problems, may I suggest you try installing Linuxinstead (for free in either 32 or 64 bit versions) it will workmuch faster then Windows. See related link below. ( Full Answer )
