XP and Vista on one PC

I have 2 hard drives. Because Vista doesn't support all programs etc is it possible to have XP on one drive and Vista on the other? I currently have Vista on 'C' and 'D' is just storage. Thanks.

You should be able to dual boot XP & Vista off the same drive: click here / click here / click here.
If I can find a tutorial that'll let you use 2 drives, I'll post it. G

Hi, I will stick my neck out and say 'I don't think it is possible, or at best, not without a whole lot of hassle'.

I base my comment on having done a fairly long Google on the subject - but now I have opened the door for someone else to come on, and say 'Oh yes you can!'

The last link seems the best but it says access denied click here

It does look possible going by Crossbow7s links.

So its not as easy as putting XP disc in and choosing to put it on 'D'.
