I am attempting to create a dual-boot computer with Vista and XP. Vista has already been installed. However, after the installer gets past loading all of the drivers, etc., a BSoD results. Initially, this screen said it had a problem with pci.exe. I was able to fix that issue by successfully slipstreaming XP with Service Pack 2 into a disk (the original had NO service packs). However, when trying to install again, I've been met with - you guessed it - yet another blue screen. This one is slightly different, however. I've been completely stumped as to how to get past it. It only gives this information:

0x0000007B (0xF7802524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

Now, I know nothing about SATA, except that I have it and it can cause problems too. Is this my issue?

(Will post my specs once I can get back on my laptop.)

You are taking the long way to do this dual-boot.

Easy way: Install XP first, then Vista.

Yeah, I guess it is a lot easier to just start with XP, huh? Still, I'm gonna have to try and find an easier way to reinstall without re-downloading all of my executables... Hmm... 'Guess that's the next step. Well, thanks a ton.
