You're not gonna believe what my big question today is... Well, it's not that much of a big deal, just a lil challenge with dualbooting Vista and XP on a HP 530. I know a lot of CPU's today come pre-installed with Vista and are, consequently, not compatible with XP in many ways (Sound cards, modems and the likes). I also know that HP 530 happens to be one of these 'new generation laptops'. I currently have a 530 with Vista pre-installed and I want to add XP to the OS list on another partition. I'm quite familiar with the theory of multibooting but this is kinda like a different scenario. I've read about the 530 and a couple of people think one would have to get XP's SATA drivers for a 530 plus the sound card drivers but I think there may be more to it. My question is this: Can I get a complete guide to multibooting XP and Vista on a HP 530 that already has Vista installed such that both OSes run perfectly well with no incompabilities or reduced functionalities??? Useful comments, suggestions and link to useful articles are very much welcome. Thanks a lot in anticipation...!
