    Hi,

    I will be formatting my drive now and I want to install XP and Vista so that I can choose which one to load at the start of booting up. How would I do this? Do I need to create two partitions, install both operating systems on the separate drives and then done? Or is there more to it? Which operating system should I install first, if there is any difference?

    Thanks for your help.

    Yes you'd more than likely have to partition the drive and that's all I do know... so just wait around and someone else with a bit more know how will help yah out.
