Dual boot on two drives


New Member

I don't know if you have already discussed this topic, but here it goes.

I bought a new laptop with Vista pre-loaded and a slot for an extra internal drive. I need to have dual boot for working with some of my clients. I have a hard SATA drive already with XP Pro in it. Can I install this drive in the laptop and run EasyBCD to use Dual Boot or do I have to do something special?

If XP wasn't installed with that hard drive connected to that laptop, you'll have to format it and install XP anew.

This topic has indeed been discussed quite often, you'll find a wealth of previous cases and tips by searching here on the forums and checking out the EasyBCD Windows XP documentation.
