August 3, 2006

If you were so inclined, how would you setup a machine that dual booted Windows XP and Windows Vista?

If I were you, I’d definitely be so inclined… Here is how you do this?

Here is a :kb article: that explains this in detail.
In case you want to know how to do this without clicking on another link, here are some 10000ft type steps. Use extreme caution and, caveat emptor.

  1. Install XP
  2. Install Vista
  3. Use bcdedit.exe in a Vista admin command window to add an entry for XP.
    • bcdedit /create {ntldr} /d “Earlier Windows OS Loader”
