Hi all,

I wanted to know if it was possible to dual boot two instances of Windows XP Pro.

I have a 120 gig hdd partitioned 40 gig which i want just for games and the rest for Apps, burning and so on.

Is it possible to dual XP for each partition?

I want to be able to select which partition to boot from like 1 for Games and the other Xp for Apps.

Thanks in advance.

Yup you can do that.
Just use a boot manager such as this one.

Thanks for your reply Ssseth ill take a look at that software.

I was looking at a site and found a piece of software called ‘HyerOS 2003’ and i was thinking of purchasing that, is this the same sort of thing?

You don’t need to buy anything. Just install XP twice. Each time select a different partition.

Then boot from one, and go to the first partition drive (usually C:), and modify boot.ini file in root directory (it might be hidden) to change the description for each XP.

The only disvantadge that you will find (you can avoid it with a boot manager which hides a partition) is that the second XP’s root drive will be D:

I wouldn’t pay for one. There are some free ones available to do the job fine.
