Dualboot Vista

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have a question: Is it possible to make a dualboot (Vista and XP)?
I have a OEM Vista Home Premium on my PC right now.
Could anyone tell me if it's possible or not?
If it is could you explain it simple ?

ok im sure there is probably more than one way to do it but this was the most common way to do it when i did it.

i did it by
1) partion the hdd into 2 partitions
2) install windows vista first
3) install windows xp
3) install vista boot pro in windows xp
4) configure vista boot pro to show option for both OS


but i've read people dual booting by installing xp first
then installing vista, and some how you can edit some vista settings to dual boot xp pro and vista, but i my selfl dont' know how
