Postby Killajb » Mon Jun 29, 2009 1:44 pm

Okay so im trying to dual boot Vista X64 that i have installed already and XP since i need it to run some old appz that i need to use.

So i ran VBP on my vista machine but i get an error says that is not installed or is in a hidden partition. :shocked:

Will this take me to non working dual boot ?

You'll need to find XP drivers at either the website of the manufacturer of your system or the website of your motherboard manufacturer.

If you give us the details (either system make and model or motherboard make and model) we can perhaps help you find them :yesnod:
