Re: Not able to install windows xp on windows 7

What is the parition of the hard drive that you have done? If windows 7 is installed on c:drive, then format any other drive (lets say format d:drive) and then restart computer and go into bios and choose the boot option to cd/dvd and put the windows xp cd in the disc tray and then again restart the pc and let the pc boot via the cd and you will get the option to install xp.
