Too many reasons to repeat here. This is a question that has been asked many times so the answer is the same as before with all the same issues as before. I know this sounds bad but it is that bad. XP has no concept/support for your SATA system so here's the deal. All this has been discussed. Please backup your system before you do this because some folk plow ahead and have no backup then they complain the new PC had no OS disks.
I have a new computer with 64 bit Win 7 Professional pre installed and two 1 terabyte SATA drives, not in RAID.
I want to have the continued option of using Win XP for a number of programs so want to set up a dual boot facility.
I have a number of .iso files from my existing XP machine so can I just load one of these onto one of the drives or will this destroy the Win 7 setup?
I know I can just install Win XP on one drive but I would then need to transfer all exiting programs and drivers etc.
