A new order of hot machines from Dell got me excited to load them with Microsoft Vista. However, due to uncertainty about program compatibility I wanted to create a second partition where I would load Windows XP. Come to find out I was approaching this in reverse order with out knowing it…meaning that by painful experience I learned that in this scenario you need to load Windows XP first followed by Windows Vista. Otherwise the boot manager installed with Windows XP won’t recognize the installation of Windows Vista.

If you know of a solution to avoid installing Windows XP prior to Windows Vista with a dual boot system please let me know how it is done.?
