Vista to Vista + XP without Vista DVD

Posted: 06-29-2007, 10:34 AM
Basically, at my workplace the laptop (with Vista pre-installed) was bought
in another city (Hong Kong), and while Vista is fine it's unfortunately not
compatible with some of our hardwares, so we want to install XP on it as
well.

I've already resized the partition, the problem is that the Vista DVD is
apparently still in Hong Kong, and nobody basically has any idea where it
is...

Is there another way to fix the booter if I try to install XP? Does
VistaBootPro, as I've seen some people mention, take care of the problem?
Thanks!

Yes, it has a section just for that purpose.
