Choose between system on boot?

Posted: 09-15-2006, 05:04 PM
Hi!
I'm very new here, in fact, this is my first post, so i appologize if this
question has been asked before.

I'm wondering if you can have two operative systems installed at the same
times, and to be given the hoice wich one you want to use at boot. I think
this is most commonly refeared to as Dual Boot? I'm mostly interested in
having my old windows XP instaled at the same time as Vista.

If this is at all possible, could someone explain to me how to do so, or
point me to a some web site that does?

Yes it is. I have XP Pro and Windows Vista RC1 installed. If this is the setup you are looking at, make sure you install XP prior to Vista

Jason: How'd you get the ISO image on the DVD ? I've been trying to battle
this via NERO [versions 6 and 7 ] and both say that it can't be burned as an
ISO image due to being larger than 2.2GB ...

So, basically I had to use Virtual PC and ImageDrive [Nero 7] to install..
but that's no fun!!..

I want to be able to create a dual-boot and have a partition ready for Vista
to be installed on.. Only if I could create a Bootable DVD with the ISO image
[build 5600 - RC1 ]

How are you doing it ?

Thanks a lot!

Can you explain how you were able to do that?
