trouble Preinstalled Vista, dual boot to XP won't complete

Long or short of it I have this quad 4 machine running Vista Home Prem -home build ASUS & Intel- been trying to do a dual boot to XP Pro. Did all the prep from the site here on how to install.. - blank patrician.. reboot to the CD install but it never completes the XP installation. Prompts to reboot to cd and/or errors out to "Error loading operating system_" (if I reboot to cd it installs XP again as the first time.) Tried the Vista DVD boot and the bcdedit but will not complete the XP PRO install when rebooting. It just locks the loop to reinstall or recover the XP installation (errors). Vista comes up fine if selected after the bcdedit. Else it goes back to the boot from cd...

Any help would be nice?
