I would like to know, how to Install Windows XP (SP2) on Windows Vista
(Dual-Boot).

I have purchased HP Compaq Notebook which came Pre-Installed with Windows
Vista Home Basic. I want to Install Windows XP on it.

I have created a Partition D (by Shrinking Volume C) to have Windows XP on
it. But when I start the computer with Windows XP Install CD inside, the
Windows XP Set-Up does'nt open at all. I have set the Boot Order
appropriately, i.e, to Boot from CD Drive first.

Could any one please help me to Install Windows XP (SP2) over Windows Vista.

Regards,
Vamsi
