I upgraded my xp pro for windows 7,i like it,but i want to duel boot with my xp,i have created a partition on my c drive and loaded xp cd,all that happens is a window appears saying i have a later version of windows and there is a problem, it invites me to look online for a solution,but none can be found at present, is there a way to get my xp to duel boot with windows 7,very grateful for any advice,

Not sure whats caused my pc to packup,i tried BCD wasnt sure about it,so i removed it so i could study the instructions,then decided to do a system restore, well halfway through it a screen appeared saying windows failed to start a recent hardware or software might be the cause,insert windows cd and select language,it wont go that far and, at the bottom of the screen is,

file boot BCD

status Oxc0000098,

i got my wife this laptop a few weeks ago,im pleased i did now,any further advice would really be welcome, thanks very much.
