Re: how to create multiple windows

To do this, you must have to be space in your hard disk. If you have it then go further. First just do one thing run diskmgmt.msc
After doing this there are some easy steps just follow it:
  1. First create one more partition, if no space left, you can reduce the size of your current partition.
  2. Install windows as we normally install.
  3. Choose current created partition to install in.
  4. After doing all this just click Done
I think this must solve your problem.

Re: how to create multiple windows

There are many way you can do this. You can make multiple window through dos command or normally through CD/DVD.
  1. Just make one more partition (if you did not have it).
  2. Set boot from DVD/CD-ROM 1st (if you install it from DVD/CD or any other basis).
  3. After doing this just do it as normal. choose dissimilar partition from your existing windows.
  4. Select which windows do you want to load when your computer is booting.
  5. By this way you can install maybe every version of windows in your computer.

Re: how to create multiple windows

There is one nice facility available. You can just install a single instance of Windows 98, Windows 95, or Windows Me in a multiple-boot configuration. You cannot configure a PC to multiple-boot Windows 98, Windows 95, or Windows Me because this every platforms use the similar boot file. For example, you can use Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows 95, but you cannot allow to use Windows 98, Windows XP, and Windows 95. You have to first install Windows XP only after installing MS-DOS, Windows 98, Windows 95, or Windows Me to prevent these operating systems from overwriting the Windows XP boot sector and the Windows XP startup files. After doing all this you can install your Linux Operating System, Same as you install all other windows.
