Hi everyone, I am new to this whole dual booting thing. After doing some initial research, I need advice on how to install and dual boot XP Pro and Server 2008 I have a system with one drive that I will be doing a fresh dual boot installation. Please give me information on this process: 1) It seems better to install XP first? Should I install XP Pro first or Server 2008? 2) Should I partition the space beforehand or after the first installation? All the guides I have seen have been shrinking the partition. What should I do? 3) I read about the problem of restore points being erased by the other system. Does it matter what order I install if I want to avoid this problem using EasyBCD? Thanks for your help.
