If you would actually read the hardware requirements you would see that it requires 13GB of free hard drive space for the initial installation. If you only allocated 10GB for a partition on your xp partition, I'm guessing that you just ended up writing over part of the XP partition. I would recommend taking some time to sit down and really educate yourself on this OS before you just slap it on a dual boot system.
