Multiple Operating System on Laptop

Hello Muhammad,

Firstly, I will suggest you to create partitions of your hard disk according to its size. You may do this by using a windows XP bootable CD. Create partitions according to your need and then install Windows XP on one of them. Once you install windows XP you may now install windows 7 onto another partition from windows XP. When prompted for upgrade or new installation of windows 7 go for new installation. Choose another partition other than windows XP for installing windows 7. Once it is installed you will always be prompted for windows XP and windows 7 at boot startup. You can select any windows that you want to log onto. Thanks.

For installation 2 windows, first you have to format windows 7 installation, because you cannot install xp when you have already installed newer windows 7. To perform this task follow below step.

1) Restart PC and Insert Windows XP Bootable CD..wait for some time and boot from cd.

2) Install XP, by selecting all option asked during xp installation

3) After Successful Installation of XP , Insert windows 7 DVD and install it in new Partition.
