Hey, I have XP installed on my computer, and new games are coming out that aren't XP compatible -- I'd like to install 2 OS on 1 drive, is this possible? My C drive is 233G and my XP system is only taking up 23G of it, can I partition the drive, install 7 on the other partition and modify the boot.ini to boot into either XP or 7 on the same drive?

Windows XP SP3

AMD Radeon HD 6850 - 1024MB

MotherBoard:
ASUSTeK Computer INC. P5K SE Rev 1.xx
Bus Clock: 200 megahertz
BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. 0401 07/19/2007
Realtek Onboard Audio

3328 Megabytes DDR2 RAM

Processor:

Hello, can you tell me the best way to do this? Should I boot with the Windows disk and partition that way or install it through XP without partitioning, or how do I do it?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
