XP64Bit & Vista64Bit(5270) in dal boot

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

  1. Hi,
    STRANGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    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.
    DID ANYONE EXPERIENCE THE SAME OR DO ANYONE HAVE AN IDEA HOW THIS COULD
    HAPPEN?

  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
    one´s?

  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.
