  • XP on Existing Drive, Vista on New Drive - DB wo/reinstall

    There's a ton of help on the web about dual booting from one drive with two partitions and even with two drives when you re-install one or both OS's, but I'm getting a new NP9262 with Vista64 and want to simply plug my existing XP hard drive into the system, and dual boot from either hard drive. Can this be done without having to reinstall either OS? What changes need to be made to config files? ...maybe boot.ini on XP disk, etc. Thanks for any help?

    I'm sorry, we do not support dual boot o/s. You will have to do your own research on this or other forum users can help make suggestions
