I already have windows XP on my pc and I am trying to go for dual boot. I have freed disk space of 30GB for this purpose.
Infact I could'nt even load Red Hat versions 4.0 and 7.0 onto my system. RH 4.0 could not read my harddrive(It said no hard drive present) and while installing RH 7.0 similar sort of problem arised. It could not go beyond a point.
My hardisk is Seagate ST3160211AS (capacity 160 GB).
Any suggestion to overcome this problem, please help.
Thanks & regards,

Upgrade BIOS and try latest version of Ubuntu 6.10 ( 6.06 is also good. ) RedHat 7 is also very old. Fedora Core is supported by Red Hat and its latest version is 6.

But if I type linux apci=off, does'nt the installation take place in default mode, in default mode it says all the previous data(xp) data will be lost.
So I tried to boot in expert mode.
Infact in help pages it said if system strucks up because of some APCI interrupt or some thing like that, type noapic nolapic.
So I typed expert noapic nolapic.
Even then it did not work.
Thanks, for your replies casper.

during installation, in partition section, select 'unpartitioned/free space for install'. nothing will go wrong with data/ XP OS. installer will setup Dual boot for you.
