How do I create a dual boot vista/xp hdd
Hi i'm the longbowman and I am new to vistaheads.
I recently purchased an Acer laptop with 500 G hdd which runs Vista OS
I would like to play my XP games on the laptop but they will not upload from disk.
I have tried to add a partition for XP which I hoped to dual boot but Vista prevents me shrinking the C drive even when run as administrator.
Please advise and many thanks
