Now I see this:
This tip is about 85% bogus. First, Vista will let you partition only up to 12 gigs per partition. Second, if you own an OEM version of XP you will not be allowed to install it. Which is why I, along with many others, returned the Vista computer I bought, doubled my RAM on my box and am sticking with XP to the bitter end. Vista is the first manifestation of the Orwellian future.
I know he is talking about Vista, but Windows 7 is really similar. So is this true? I CAN'T add XP to this hard drive now? Because my cd is OEM?
Well I'm defragmenting right now. Then I'm gonna try to partition this thing (never did that b4), and I will try this and see what happens.
