Hi. I was trying to install XP on my Windows 7 so I can have dual boot up. I followed the steps here: http://www.sevenforu...ume-shrink.html
on how to partition my disk with Disk Management, but, like an idiot, I didn't see in step 6 I had to click on that link to actually figure out how to allocate the space. So, I went ahead and put in the XP disk and restarted and got to step 5 of here (in method 2 where Windows 7 is installed first): http://www.sevenforu...ndows-7-xp.html
and saw that I didn't have the space allocated. http://www.sevenforu...-xp-w7-xp-6.jpg
I pressed F3 to quit so I can go back and allocate the space correctly and it said my computer would restart in 15 seconds. So I take out the XP disk while it's waiting to restart and as soon as it does restart, I can't load up Windows 7. It gets stuck at the Verifying DMI Pool data step. Please help. I'm using my dad's laptop right now to post this. Thank you very much.
