I have two ssd`s one running win 8.1 and I want to run xp on the other ssd because I have an old game that I just love and it wont noway run on 8.1 or 7.
The game is Empires dawn of the modern world. Sad aint it.
I used to do this easily with 7 but am not sure with 8.1 new bios eufi thingy.
I have an i7 Asus z87 k board with a quad 4770k cpu and 16gb ram with a asus gtx750 gfx card.
I can get the game to load and start the intro but the mouse freezes. so hence the need for xp.
I have tried compatability modes with 8,7,vista,xp sp2,sp3 all the same mouse freezing yet it plays on a windows 8 pc but not on a 7.
How do I setup this dual boot as I was always told the oldest OS first?
THX in advance any directions welcome.
