Re: How to preserve restore points in XP before booting in Vista?
Try hiding the operating system partitions from each other using Computer
Manager. Boot into XP, right click My Computer, select Manage, select Disk
Management. Right click the Vista partition and select Change drive letters
and paths and click the Remove Button. That will hide the Vista Partition
when you boot to XP. Restart the computer and boot into Vista. Do the same
thing to remove the Drive letter and path to the XP partition.
In Dual boot system I use a third partition that I store all shared files
including the My Documents folder. I turn off System Restore on both
operating systems for the shared partition. Now System Restore only monitors
the partition that houses the operating system and doesn't mess with the
others as it has no access to them.
