Can you boot Windows 7 in Safe Mode? Turn the power on and keep pressing the F8 key till you see the Advanced Boot Options menu. Choose Safe Mode. Does Windows 7 start up?

You can just format the Windows 7 partition and then install WinXP.
Are you going to be using the WinXP installation disks or a Recovery partition already on your laptop HDD?

You can use VMware software to use Windows XP on Windows 7.
and then install Windows XP in this.


And if you only want use windows XP on your Laptop then you can clear boot.mgr files then you can able to install XP.
