    who is telling you that again?
  3. Typically in order to dual boot Windows 7 and an early version of Windows, the earlier verion has to be installed first meaning, you would need to have Windows XP installed before installing Windows 7 on a dual boot. Maybe this is the issue? If so, this workaround may help you - http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/8057-dual-boot-installation-windows-7-xp.html
