I am certain that this topic had been discussed before. I would like to run both operating systems on my desktop. New build, so I am certain that it has the capability. XP Home is already loaded, would like to also load Vista Home Premium, of which I have to CD, can anyone point me in the right direction please? :thumbsup:

Hey brah!
You might want to get a separate hard drive to install Vista on. If there's any troubles with one OS, it's only on one hard drive. I remember having 98se and 2k on one HD and it wasn't the best situation.
