  1. I have bought a new laptop (OS windows 7). Now I want to install server 2003 on a partition in my hard drive. When i try to install it from cd, after some times showing little bit of the loading in a blue screen, it show an error like to check ur harddrive connection, or check for virus... and show an error. The same things happen with the windows xp. Please someone help

    As you are using a new laptop, Win Server 2003 and Win XP may not be able to install to the hard drive if they are connected via a SATA connection of a type that it does not support.

    If you only want to try these OS's for some reason, rather than running them as full-time operating systems, I would suggest running them in a virtual machine.

    I could be wrong on this...but I think Server 2003 does not allow installation on a dual boot environment...
