Hi guys,
Does anyone know if it is possible, or has done, a dual-boot setup of Win XP Pro and Win MCE (2005)? I'm curious to know if it is possible and if so, what is the bes way to go about it and any potential problems.

My current setup is I have a Athlon 64 3800+ with 1TB RAID 0 running Win XP Pro. I have partitioned the OS onto C: with 50GB and left the rest as general storage for the moment. I also have a digital TV tuner card, which is why I'm thinking of installing MCE.

All help and info gratefully reeived.

Cheers,
Aquaboy.

Win MCE is only an upgrade of XP, so it can replace XP PRO. But you can install both on different partitons and have no problems.

Hi Dan,
thanks for the quick reply.
A couple of questions then....
1. Is it better to simply replace XP with MCE or to have them run separately?
2. If the latter, what is the best way to set it up? Create another partition and load MCE to that, as opposed to the current C:?

Cheers,
