MGadAllah Posted February 25, 2008 Share Posted February 25, 2008 Scenario: You want to install Vista on your PC alongside your XP installation, on the same drive. You have installed Vista already.Tutorial Summary: We're going to use the DISKPART on the Vista DVD to shrink the Vista partition on the hard disk and create enough space for an installation of Vista. We'll then install XP, repair the Vista bootloader which will be overwritten during the XP installation, and then use the EasyBCD utility to configure Vista's bootloader to boot the XP partition.This is an updated tutorial, based on our first Windows Vista/XP dual-booting workshop. The main difference is that EasyBCD has been updated, but the processes are essentially unchanged.This tutorial was tested on a VMWare 6 Workstation and an AcerPower SK50 system.Prepare Windows VistaThis tutorial assumes that Vista has been installed on a partition which takes up 100% of the hard drive, so we need to create some space. Boot off the Vista DVD. Hit Next from the start screen and then select Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
