Writing a post after several months
You may have come across this problem. Usually when you install Windows 7, if you need to install XP as dual boot you need to bother a bit. Either you can try installing XP into another partition and later repair the boot manager by booting with a Windows 7 DVD and choosing Repair. Or the safe way is to install XP first and then WIndows 7.
However it’s not the case now. Once Windows 7 is installed and you need to completely remove 7 and install XP. You may have done this successfully in some times and some of you may have come across a problem. When you boot with a Windows XP disk you’ll end up with a Blue Screen. So some of you may say “Can’t Install Windows XP to a hard disk which Windows 7 has been installed ” .
Solution is simple. Go to BIOS setup and look for “SATA Configuration”.
There you may see AHCI is selected. There select “ATA” or “IDE”, save and reboot. You are done
Think this may be helpful for you all someday.

You may have come across this problem. When you add the availability information in the backend for a product, in the frontened the availability image will be displayed with a phrase “Usually ships in” which you may not need.
Let’s see how to solve this. (I’m using Virtuemart 1.9 package. For older versions also similar method may apply).
This is what you get normally.
Now let’s try to remove this “Usually ships in” phrase.
Find the “english.php” file in “/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/languages/common/” folder.
Then find “Usually ships in” phrase there. Around line 362 you’ll find the line
'PHPSHOP_DELIVERY_TIME' => 'Usually ships in',
Replace it with
'PHPSHOP_DELIVERY_TIME' => '',
Now save and check the flypage in the frontend. You’ll get something like this.
Now you’ll see that the “Usually Ships in” phrase is removed. But a colon is seen there. Let’s try to remove it.
Find “availability.tpl.php” file in the “components/com_virtuemart/themes/default/templates/common/” folder. (here “default” is your virtuemart theme’s name if you are using one other than the default)
There search for “PHPSHOP_DELIVERY_TIME” ( Think you understand why we are searching for this phrase.)
In around line 36 you’ll see this line
<!--?php echo $VM_LANG--->_('PHPSHOP_DELIVERY_TIME') ?>:
There remove the colon “:”. So the new line must be
<!--?php echo $VM_LANG--->_('PHPSHOP_DELIVERY_TIME') ?>
See the frontend. You are done.
You’ll get something like this nowGoogle+
