    While trying to boot from DOS, I get an error while loading Config.sys file saying "Unable to Control A20 Line!" " XMS Driver not installed"

    I have a Core 13 CPU with 8GB DDR3 (1333MHz)
    My previous Software was DOS/Foxpro based (which would work Fine upto Windows XP) and my New Software works on Windows 7 Ultimate Edition.
    To support my Previous Software, I need to have a FAT32 Partition along with Windows XP Loaded, and for Windows 7, I need to have a NTFS Partition. I dont have a Bootable Windows XP CD, but have the Setup Files Loaded on my HDD.

    I am unable to Set up my Windows XP, because it doesnt load Smartdrv.exe due to the above error.

    Please Guide.

    Perhaps you can try DOSBox to run this software. However, why continue to support something which is so manifestly old?
