JSI Tip 9963. When you use Winnt32.exe to reinstall Windows XP on a computer that has Windows Vista and Windows XP, the computer hangs with 'Disk read error has occurred'?

The subject problem will occur if select the boot legacy operating system and launch setup options when you run Winnt32.exe.

To workaround this issue, use the Windows XP CD-ROM to reinstall Windows XP, or use Winnt32.exe but select launch setup when the computer restarts and DO NOT select boot legacy operating system.
