    Is it possible to create a new partition/volume on my hard drive (ultimate aim is to dual boot 2OS) without reformatting and losing my current Xp OS install? The current set up is only one volume and I'm aware that each OS would need it's own partition......:confused:

    You would resize your existing partition, making space for a new one, and then create a new partition in the free space.

    No, unfortunately Powerquest and Acronis show you the actions available, in their trial partition software , without being able to put that particular process into practice.
