Actually stated by my instructor it is necessary to install any olde
versions of windows before newer versions. If you want xp pro you mus
save all that you need and format the disk. Then install xp pro befor
vista

I installed Vista first. I then installed Windows XP. Next was DOS 6.22 and
then Windows 7.

So, you see, there are always work arounds that instructors don't know
about.

Your instructor gave you wrong info.
Vista is the 1st MS operating system where, if dual booting, the older OS
does NOT have to be installed 1st.
