This link explains that Vista will NOT work if you have an earlier version of windows installed as a "Dual-Boot" or "Operating System":
\015\012So, in regards to my Colleague's earlier post, the solution will not work according to Microsoft.
\015\012Now, This link:
\015\012Instructs how to set up a "Multiple-Operating-System" under Windows XP. OF Course, the Versions HAVE to be Older than XP and NOT Vista or Newer.
\015\012Seemingly, Microsoft does NOT provide a way to operate XP and Vista on a "Multiple-Boot" or "Operating System" platform as of now. probably because Vista does Everything that XP does, and more.
\015\012SO, If your need Requires that you use XP, then your will have to Use your XP disk to Format and Wipe out your Hard drive to Perform a COMPLETE Operating System Installation. This WILL Remove/Destroy ALL Data on your hard disk. You can Transfer your documents, pictures, music, etc. back (if you know where they reside from your backups). E mail may be more difficult if it's in "Outlook" etc. if it's in Vista and try to goto XP.
