I need some one to figure out what is wrong with my computer , I am not able to install any new (secondary)operation system , I have a 64-bit machine, but the current OS I have installed since 3 years is windows xp pro 32-bit, I was able to install different OS like Windows 7 or sometimes even Fedora 7 but I had got rid of em and just kept Windows XP, Now I want to try Windows 8 Consumer Preview Edition I've got but but everytime I am trying to install I get this error saying IRQL_less_or_equal
. sometimes I try to format with windows built in Disk management I get this error that the drive is locked, I have tried Partition manager as well but didn't really got the empty partition to be able to install any new OS. In case of windows 8 I don't reach the stage where I can choose which partition to install OS onto, in case of trying to install Fedora 16 64-bit I do get to choose the partition where i want to install but i end up with some error I do not understand and the installation just stops.
for Fedora I have tried installing on Ext3 partition but i reformatted it to NTFS and merged another partition with it. Please help me out I want secondary 64-bit OS...
