    Ive read the Instructions on how to setup XP to dual-boot with Vista...
    However, im concerned (and someone mentioned it happened to them in the thread)
    that when XP SETUP is finished with the TX part of setup and reboots PC to go into the
    rest of setup (GUI XP SETUP)) it wont continue....?
    is this right>? ive read elsewhere that if the partitions for XP are created in Vista that it wont boot into the rest of setup....

    I could make the partition during XP setup if this will help?

    thanks

    When I did my dual boot [using win2k / vista] I used an existing partition that was created by vista. No problem at all. It is a little more difficult than say installing win2k after xp however as long as you follow the instructions there are no problems.

    As always make an image of your system before you start. This way if something does go wrong, it is a simple matter to restore the image and be back where you started from.
