Dual Operating Systems

  Mr. T 01:25 16 Jan 2004

I would like some help on how to install two operating systems on the same hard drive.
My existing OS is Win ME and I would like to add Win XP Pro.
Can I do that and will it interfere in the operation of the computer as a whole.

I found it did interfere,if you still want to have a dual boot keep the file system to Fat32 not
the best for WXP or PRO but it works,when i had a dual boot it looked ok at first but did have problems later so i dumped it.

I installed Win XP Home Edition alongside my existing Win 98SE, and have had no problems. Provided your existing Windows is working okay, and you have a separate drive letter available for Win XP, the XP setup routine will do everything for you.

There was a feature on this in the Oct 2003 issue.
