Creating a dual boot.

By mam5141 ·
To Whom It May Concern:

I have a Hewlet-Packard 740N Provilion PC. The computer came with Windows XP Home Edition installed on it. There is currently a hidden partition on the C Drive that has all of the recovery information for Windows XP Home Edition on it, and the partition that supports Windows XP Professional as well. How can I get rid of the hidden partition? If I can’t will that interfere with the dual boot process, how can I create a dual boot using Partition Magic 7 to supportboth Windows 2000 Professional and Windows XP Professional on my computer?

Consider this vital info that you will need to Bckup for future reference

Read the Partition Magic manual to familiarize yourself with the software

Install the software use the Help file to learn what task you are about to perform and how get the results

Partition Magic will allow yo to create or move a partition without losing any data

Once yo have the software installed on the machine determine if the partition will exist on the drive provided you have a large enough hard drive to instakk Windows 2K,now once the partition is created set the XP partition to active

You can then insert the W2K cd in drive and perform the install,you will be prompted to what partition to install the OS on choose the new partition spaceset the file system for partitition
it will format the partition space and continue to follow onscreen instructions
