  1. Hello Nithin,

    I'm sorry to say but in order to install XP, you would have to format your hard-drive (which means you will loose ALL your data unless you do back-ups), then install xp and if you have the CD, install windows 7. To my knowledge, there is no way of doing it other than how I stated but perhaps there is.
  2. Not true. You can dual boot with windows 7 currently installed. Here's a guide. You would want method 2.

    We are assuming that you want the dual boot setup though. If you don't, let us know what kind of issues you're having.

    Hey sathish_99

    I'd be more than happy to help. It's best if you start your own thread for this. That will avoid hijacking this thread, and confusion over who is talking to whom. I'll watch for your thread, or you can PM me the link.
