    You cant just install them over themselves. Vista writes to the MBR.

    Best way is to make a second partition, install XP there. Boot Vista and you will get a "Vista is damaged/corrupt" warning, put in your Vista DVD and it will automatically repair the damage XP did to the boot area as well as make it double/triple/quad boot as well all by itself.

    Otherwise, you will have to do it manually, which usually involves a 3rd party boot loader...

    I've seen this problem happen before with pre-installed vista. I think the only option is a fresh format with something like partition magic.

    i did that. im trying to install on a now raw partion of ten gb for xp. xp will change the raw to ntsf and i do know you Press F8 key on your keyboard while booting your PC. You will get into “Advanced Boot Options”. Select “Disable Driver Signature Enforcement” but thats everytime i boot up the pc... thats not a option.

    finishing the post

    I end up dual booting with two versions of vista 32 and 64. yes i know that xp is lighter. my problem is/was the way my bios are i cant change the sata settings. i found that most xp sp2 had only ata drivers not sata. evertime it tried to load windows from the disc it would crash. and when i tried to load xp with sata support, i still needed to change a sata controller option that i had no control over. so it to would crash on "loading windows" from the disc. vista 32 will accept unsigned drivers so thats the only option i had. so thanks guys for the input.
