Dual boot

by techie In reply to My pc wont boot up after ...

Always install on separate partitions, install older operating systems first, XP and then windows 7, XP on C:\drive and windows 7 on D:\drive. If installing Linux also, install last. You may be able to put windows 95 and 98 on the same partition but not XP and windows 7. I have made dual, triple and quad-triple boot computers and with windows and linux on the same PC. Create all the partitions up front, or as you go, linux is a bit more tricky, but simple enough. Good Luck.
