Trouble trying to dual boot XP and Vista

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've had Vista installed for several months now, and thus far it has been a very good experience. However, just the other day i found an app that can only be run in 32bit versions of Windows, so i decided to quickly install XP and dual boot between them.

First i took some space from Vista and left it as "unpartitioned space" using the Acronis Disk Director.

Then i went to install XP, and I encountered this:



I have absolutely no idea what to do. Please help.

If it makes any difference, I'm running Vista on it's own Partition, and have 2 other logical partitions for my games and data. I also have a seperate harddrive to store my games and data on too.

I've tried installing XP onto the seperate harddrive instead, only to run into the same problem.

Thank you for your time.
