    Hey all,

    I was wondering if anyone knows a way around this. I currently would like to dual boot my I was able to get Windows 7 installed just find and also would like to put on Windows XP for program compatibility for my school work but I can't seem to get it install. I start the PC and boot of a XP SP3 disc that I have and it will just sit on a black screen for over 5 minutes and bring a blue screen of death with stop code 0x0000007B and won't go any further. I even tried doing it with just 1gb of memory in and that didn't help. Tried same disc in my older desktop and that works fine in that pc but just can't boot on this one to install. This is the entire string that I get for a code: STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78D2524,0xC0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000

    on this machine only don't know why. Any help to get this installed would be greatly apprecaited. Oh and btw I did try an older sp2 disc from a dell and that did the same thing.
