    Hi,

    I currently have a pc with Windows 7 Ultimate x86. I've activated this OS with a SLIC loader. Now I want to create a dual boot system with XP. I Know the difficulties this might bring (restoring XP bootloader, 7 loader and grub loader). However, will it also affect my file on my c:\ drive (grldr) keeping my Win 7 activated?

    Anyone? Perhaps any experiences form people who previously used a Vista system, activated it by a softmod and installed XP on a different partition afterwards? Thanks in advantage.

    Easy way is remove that HDD, put blank HDD in and install XP or Vista or whatever to blank HDD.

    Then put W7 HDD back in and use the BIOS F11 option to dual boot.

    Don't trip. Is other more complicated ways if you no like this option. I sure someone else will spell them out
