I found an unused windows XP pro liscense and disc in my basement, which greatly excited me and I proceeded to install (dual boot) on my laptop that already had windows 7. it installed without any hitches. I had to go into windows 7 recovery and use the three terminal BOOTREC commands. I then went into windows 7 and used easyBCD to add the windows XP entry. Anyway, I know its installed CORRECTLY because it shows the windows XP loading screen for about 2 seconds before it bluescreens and instantly restarts. I dont know how I can disable the bluescreen auto restart so I can see the error (it only pulls up advanced options for 7, not XP). so can anyone help me? I cant imagine its a hardware problem as windows 7 is running flawlessly.
