Windows 7 install (raid/dual boot)

#1

Seeing as I’m billy no mates tomorrow night I’m finally going to install the win 7 I got for Christmas…

The question(s) is/are:

Is it possible to dual boot with the xp installation I already have? Is it easy if so? Last dual boot I had was with Linux and it did it for me.

Is it possible if I go buy another HD to install it as raid (over 2 drives) and leave xp on a separate drive?

Is it actually worth bothering?

The reason I ask is OH uses the PC a fair bit for work and she’s happier using xp than 7, she’s also probably the worst person in the world at backing anything up :frowning:

TIA
