Re: Dual Boot: Can I reinstall WindowsXP onto a different hard drive.......
Did you update XP? Do you still have an XP license or did you lose it by
using the less expensive upgrade version. You can always reinstall without a
license and set up dual booting using the Vista boot loader, but you must
disconnect the Vista drive while doing it. Then after setting it back up to
boot Vista, download and install VistaBootPro and set up a legacy drive,
pointing to the XP installation.
