Double Win XP install

Hi. :slight_smile:

I was wondering if installing a dual boot of Windows XP was possible. I’m not talking of installing WinXP along with another different OS, but…2 WinXP on the same PC.

-WinXP 1 for games and games only,
-WinXP 2 for all the rest (internet, office, video, mp3 etc, etc…)

I mean I would like to keep the WinXP for games installation (WinXP 1) as clean as possible, with only the drivers necessary, disabling all the windows services and stuff not needed on a general windows installation.

I guess that this would give me a system with more resources for games (ram I guess), less need to use the paging file, less defrags (even if I already keep the programs/games on different partitions of the OS) and so on…

Is this a completely stupid idea (please don’t be too harsh), or is it feasible?
Is there another workaround (would creating another account profile do the job so that I won’t need to have two windows installation —> but I guess that I can’t do that for drivers and programs I already installed in “use for all profiles” mode)?

Thanks a bunch.

Yes It is, you can install as many as you want. :slight_smile:

There is a limitation even for that. :bigsmile:

:slight_smile: Might it be the maximum number of partitions you can reach on a certain setup? Just wondering…:slight_smile:

Not really, the amount of free space more likely… and the amount of serials youhave, hehe.

LOL!!! :wink: The correct answer is often the simplest. :bigsmile:
