    Well being trying to install xp along side my Win7 installation (dual boot), but xp keeps freezing or crashing.
    Ive made a few slipstream xp discs with sata drivers.
    Still wont install proper.

    So i tried install win7 on the second partition and that will install but is very slow and hangs for ages.
    Im sure i got right sata drivers.(intel matrix storage manager from toshiba).

    Can anyone shed some light?

    i have toshiba Satellite a200
    intel duo t5550
    3gb ram

    Hi

    If you use SATA drivers then the SATA mode option in BIOS should be set to AHCI.
    If you donít use SATA drivers then you have to set to compatible mode.

    Here a nice description how to add SATA drivers
