Installing another OS on a 2nd Hard Drive
I just recently installed Windows Vista, but I would like to reinstall
Windows XP Media Center on my 2nd Hard Drive. I understand how to install XP
on the 2nd Hard Drive, but I do not know how to switch between the two
operating systems. Can anyone explain how this is done?

Re: Installing another OS on a 2nd Hard Drive
To create a dual boot system the rule is "oldest OS installed first" -
reason of compatibility between OSs.
XP must boot from an active partition on drive 0 (Usually C)- a boot manager
is necessary to boot XP from another partition.
There have been several posts dealing with the same subject - with solutions
offered.
