Hi,

Its me again.

 

My current pc is win xp sp3. I want to put win 7 along with win xp. (since I have too much important data for a full format)

then later i want to erase xp and have win 7 alone (without loosing data)

 

Is this possible?

 

I have registered copy of win 7 and I dont have external hard drive.

Yes, though it is a bit cleaner with multiple hard drives.  You can partition one physical drive into two logical drives.  Keep in mind that in April 2014, support for XP will go away completely.

For some programs already in your winXP, it is pretty hard to transfer to other window i.e Win7. So you need to install them again, if you do not have the CD/DVD, then bad luck.
