    You probibly have this solved already - but just in case or if anyone else has the same problem

    I had the exact same problem...

    the deal is in a dual boot set up - once vista is loaded you can not install xp because the boot.ini file is in a differant format

    but the problem is easily solved - install xp on the other hard drive and then download a program called Vistabootpro it will correct the problem.
