OS Dual Booting

by TheChas In reply to OS Dual Booting

The "best" way to set up a dual boot with W2K and XP is to;

Have 2 or more drives or partitions.

Install W2K first. (if you think you might want to remove W2K latter, try installing it to a drive other than "C:"

Install XP. Pay attention to the options, make sure that you choose to set up a dual boot, and install XP on a different drive than W2K.

It is also best practice to "dual" install any applications that you will use in both OS installs.
