Cannot Install Windows XP as Dual Boot

#1
Hello guys,

I have an Problem. I tried to install Windows XP at a other Partition , but when the CD load all from the Disk theres an Black Screen where a white cursor blinks. After 5 Hours the Laptop shut off. I have an Pre- Installed Windows 7 and no CD :\. When I try to load my Drivers by hitting F6 the installation say that theres no Hard Drive. Pls I need Help !

I don't understand. You say you have no CD but you are installing Windows XP from CD?
F6 lets you load the drivers for the hard drive. You need to have them on a floppy or another CD to load them, you obviously cannot load the drivers for a disk from that same disk.
