Can't boot after installing XP?

Can't boot after installing XP? Topic: How to write a cd in windows 7
June 16, 2019 / By Fawn
Question: I wanted to dual boot XP and VIsta. I had Vista installed on C: I already had 67 GB in unpartitioned space on the same hard drive, so I started installing XP there. When the yellow bar ended, it said it was going to restart the computer and that the setup would continue after that.... but it didn't. Several times I have tried. I can't boot from the hard drive. Or I get the Press key to boot from CD.... or, if I don't press, I get a black screen with the blinking writing rectangle. On BIOS I have CDROM first then the hard drive on the booting devices. How can I boot from the E: partition where XP is installed? I can't even go back to Vista now.... dude, what was that for, free points? go to somewhere i know thanks at everyone expect carling, but you didn't help. I already answered you carling

You always have to install the older Windows OS first and the later version second in a dual boot system. So in your case: Back up everything Format Partition Install XP Then install Vista/7 in another partition. When you try to install XP on a machine which already has Vista on it, you will have problems. If you must install XP after Vista then read the following link http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-v...

i think u have to go into the bios and boot from the E: drive but i tried to go from vista to xp and the pc just will not let you do it, id advise just having one os on a pc, it keeps things simple, its probably getting confused about which software is actually meant to be getting used,delete the extra partitions and do a clean install, u can only have one os on a pc i think

The boot order : 1 hdd , so it can start. You will have to format your xp partition,the cd was broken.

if that car has a factory amplifier in it you have problems and hacking into the wiring harness is a no no.to get sound from your stereo you are going to have to run a speaker wire strait from the stereo to each speaker by passing the factory amplifier if their is one and there must be.and i would recommend you buy the right plug in to hook to the new stereos wiring harness to. it plugs into the cars wiring harness were you unplugged the old stereo from.they sell this at wall mart for 9 dollars in the car audio area.give them the yr make and model of your ride and they will sell you the part and it comes with a wiring diagram you just follow it ,they call it plug and play.if you did not cut the plugs off go with what i just said and tape up were you had to strip the wire.if you did cut them plugs off get connectors and put them back. so you can do the job like it is suppose to be done.then you would not be thinking you done something wrong.you may have everything right,first move run a speaker wire to the back of each speaker this should give you speaker power strait from the internal amp in the new stereo to each speaker by passing any factory amplifier that may be in the car.if you do one speaker you will know if it works or try an extra speaker + to+ and - to - on each one.hope this helps you out. and if you can locate the amplifier and the remote turn on wire on the amplifier attach it to the stereos remote turn on wire and it may work that way but the factory amp in that car is junk the new stereos internal amplifier is most likely the best one in the car.they sell a roll of speaker wire in wall mart to,its about 10 dollars.and these are the only audio equipment you get from wall mart,stick to the accessory's only.
