XP64Bit & Vista64Bit(5270) in dal boot

Discussion in 'Windows 64 Bit' started by Ole Sundstrom, Feb 19, 2006.

  1. Hi,
    After installing Vista 64Bit (Build 5270) in a dual boot with my existing XP
    64Bit all of my SATA disks seemed to have a defect.
    Every time I was booting to Vista chkdsk ran before I could log in.
    Every time I was booting to XP, I was able to log in but then the Intel
    Storrage Manager started to test my disk.
    I bought new disk and untill now I didnt dare to install Vista again.
    By the way, I have formatted the old disks and they are smooth without any
    problems in another setup.

  2. I have XP x64 in dualboot with Vista x64 (build 5270) on a single SATA drive.
    I have also had both OS:es in dualboot on a RAID 0 configuration. No problem
    at all.
    No drivers needed when installing on the single SATA drive. Only when
    installing on the RAID 0 I had to F6 and load the drivers in XP. In Vista it
    is no F6, but Advanced and Load Drivers.

    Are you using SATA I or SATA II disks?
    Did you have to load drivers when you installed?
    If you had to load drivers, are you absolutely sure you choosed the right

  3. Hi
    I have SATAII and I had to load the driver and I am pretty sure that I
    loaded the driver I had too.
    I have now made a new dual boot (and it works) but I also made a new Vista
    Install DVD. Might be there has been a failure on my first DVD.
