    Windows Vista and 7 use a different strategy to install from XP etc. There is no I386 folder in Vista or 7.

    They use a different pre-install environment and boot differently.

    I do not know for sure as - for me - XP is dead and gone - but I think it will prove difficult to achieve this type of installation disk unless you can write your own programs that can setup the various installs for you.

    Do you mean a disk with XP and 7, or two OS disks?
    I think it should be 2 disks right? Sony is being so considerate... :p
