bOoting 64bit OS with 32BIT os

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I have XP SP2 (32 Bit) installed on my c-drive, now i want to install XP SP2 (64 Bit) on D-drive (on Another Hard drive). Can 32bit xp boot 64bit xp or i have to make another boot file in drive.

I don't understand what you want to do. You can wipe the drive and install x64 XP no problem, but you may have issues seeing as XP 64 was uncommon.

yes that's fine, you can install it just fine but then you need to change the bootloader so you can boot both. take a look at easy BCD

thanks. But is there any way that i can get a list of OS's during boot and don't have to change the bootloader everytime??

yes, that way. they have instructions on their website so you can select one of the two each time.

+1 to EasyBCD. its easy to use. i use it to manage my dual boot OS.
