I am in the process of doing a new build and this is the first time for me. I want a dual boot system with Win XP and Win 7 installed. This being my first build I hope I'm not taking on too much. I have a thread going in the XP forum with some great info (thanks Louis) but it got totally sidetracked from the original thought. I was given a link there that is pretty clear on what to do but I'm unsure about a couple of things. Here is the link for dual boot system
1. Can partitions be formed out of the bios and why do I need several of them?
2. I'm using Win 7 pro and XP mode is available. Is this sufficient to run 32 bit programs?
Probably will have more.
