    Hi guys,

    I'm having a problem with installing Windows XP x64 on my brand new Dell Precision T5400 workstation. The machine came with Windows Vista Buisness x64 installed. I've shrunk the Vista partition to make space for a new XP partition. The problem is that every time I run the installation, when it gets to the stage where it says windows is starting, the screen goes blank for a few seconds and I get a blue screen with a bunch of error messages all relating to hard drive problems. I'm using a USB floppy drive to load the third part RAID drivers and they seem to load properly so I don't think that is the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I've been trying for days to sort this one out.
