Dual Boot Win7 & WinXP

By sbrager ·
We have a new computer with Win 7 in order to replace a very slow old one running WinXP. Since the woman who'll be getting the new computer has not been trained on Win 7, I want to make her life easy and create a 2nd partion on the new computer's HDD, clone her WinXp disk into the 2nd partition and dual-boot it. This will give her the use of a faster computer using a familiar OS will giving her Win 7 training.

I need some ideas about accomplishing these tasks.

It might make things a little more complicated for someone who has no experience with Windows 7 to consider a Dual Boot option as an alternative. However, there are several threads available on Microsoft forums to assist you with this task. For further assistance, please refer to the official Windows 7 Support Forum located here: .
