Dual Boot Both OEM Vista And OEM XP?

Now I cant get my original windows 7 back. - I upgraded Windows 7 to Windows 10. - I created a bootable CD with the Windows ISO on it. - I You can. The worse case scenario is that you'd have to call Microsoft to explain why you've exceeded the number of allowed activations - which by the way is really easy and quick. Is that doable? http://webtrekkie.com/dual-boot/dual-boot-windows-xp-vista-boot-menu-issues.php

You guys have been so helpful, my hats off to you. Now restart with cold boot. The older drive had vista that has clean installed win 10 on it now. I suggest you take a longer view as to what machines are viable and low-end.

  9. However, I can not boot into it.

Upgraded my pc at various points and now want to dual boot to my copy of win7Pro, to run some games, as they ran faster on win7, than win10.
