Dual boot Windows XP and Windows Vista
So many of us would like dual boot the two operating systems so that they can enjoy the new features of Windows Vista as well as retain the flexibility of Windows XP. It is possible to install both systems on the same computer, creating a menu multi boot in two completely different ways:
Installing Windows XP and Then Windows Vista
This is the case most simple! Just follow the steps of installation of Windows XP and then install Windows Vista specifying another partition or the same score but a different name for the Windows directory (e.g. WinVista).
The Vista installer creates a boot menu to switch from one environment to another at start-up.
Installing Windows XP over Windows Vista
If Vista is already installed on the computer, you can either:
It must then take care to specify another partition or another directory for Windows XP (WinXP for example). Following the installation of Windows XP, the system ignores the Windows Vista.
1. You do not have the installation DVD of Vista
Just download Vista Boot Pro to edit, and then activate the BCD Vista, which contains the settings for your system.
2. You have the installation DVD of Vista
In this case, a repair of your startup should be sufficient to enable the choice between the two systems.
