    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.
