Default Re: XP mode!?

Yah, I was going to do it through the usb disk I have. After my old one messing up, I will never update through windows again.

Actually, I might just buy a cheap internal harddrive and throw windows xp on it. I would do it now but the only other hd I have is an external usb. Unless you can throw xp on an external usb?

Just dual boot XP and 7.

Install XP first and you also need to hide 7 from XP if you are concerned about restore points.

Can I dual boot xp from an usb external drive? or do I need to buy another cheap harddrive? I don't want to use the main disk I'm using now because only reason why I need xp/ie7 is my job.
