I have been trying to dual boot a Gateway Laptop with Vista Home Premium 32

drive which I also did.
XP started moving the pre-installation files to the CPU, and when the nice
blue screen came up asking to Install Windows XP I pressed ENTER. However,
instead of getting the screen that would stay Install Windows XP on a
