it will tell you that a corrupt boot loader was found and fixed. In windows xp, I install to a logical drive D: that is about 46gigs free. Although I've never been in your situation like that, but I feel like the bootloader shouldn't be in conflict with your CD boot. You should allocate at least 10GB of space to your new partition, as Vista requires approximately 6-7GB depending on your configuration.
This will revert your system back to XP boot menu though, so you'll have to reinstall Vista. If not, then you use the recovery function on your XP CD to install the XP bootloader.

So forgetting the whole previous problem.
at the time i didnt know they redid the boot record and loader which takes over. I have XP as the primary. That would lead to Vista being unbootable and force you to perform a repair installation before you every use the OS.Hope this helps,John Flag Permalink This was helpful (0) Collapse - I ask this because the /3GB switch doesn't seem to do anything in my WinXP Pro install(it still only sees 2.5GB…should see closer to 3.5 based on the research I did

I format and reinstall about twice a year as a personal preference but now that the CD does not boot anymore, I am going to have to look into alternate methods.

Thought i'd share my experience trying to perform a dual install with Vista and XP. (What a nightmare!) I have recently had problems installing XP with Vista install but am happy So what can I do to get a dual boot system so when the computer starts up and the screen comes up with the option Win XP will start in 30 The folders are $UPGRADE.~OS and $WINDOWS.~BT, and a BOOTSECT.BAK file. Setting up the Dual-Boot Once Windows XP setup has finished, it'll automatically boot you into the newly installed copy of Windows XP – note that you will not be able to boot into

Upon reboot, when it tries to load the vista partition, I get a blue screen of death, something about memory error, and that I should use CHKDSK /F on the partition
