I am running both XP Pro and Windows Server 2003 Standard on one machine (dual boot). Is there any program that enables you to boot off the windows xp partition while in windows 2003? VMware has something like that with there virtualization products. That means you can use a phyical disk instead of a hard disk image for the virtual machine. I have the workstation version, and you can create a new virtual PC on a sperate partition, but you cannot boot another [pre-made] partition. So is there any software on the internet that allows yo to boot off another partition while a OS is loaded on a another partition??? The reason why: I want to continue the use of the server but use my xp pro partition with all of office applications/everything else on it.

Partition 1: Windows XP Pro
Partition 2: Windows Server 2003 Standard
Problem: Booting partition 1 on partition 2

I have not heard of a app that can do this. Have any of you ever heard of such product?????


PS: Sorry if this is the wrong fourm. It does have to do with windows 2003!!!! :thumbsup:
