They're lying :tongueout:

Shrink the Vista partition, Create a new partition at the end of the drive (use Partition Magic, Acronis, or Paragon)
Install XP to that partition.
Install EasyBCD in XP
Add an XP entry in EasyBCD
EasyBCD -> Bootloader Management -> Reinstall Vista Bootloader

and everything should work swell :smile:
