How to dual boot xp and vista?


First of all partition a drive up. Make sure its a large capacity drive, something well over 100GB.

Boot the computer with CD/DVD set as the first boot device and pop the XPmag-glass_10x10.gif CD in the drive and allow setup to begin. When you come to the screen where you select the drive partition you should see the drive listed with all the space listed as unpartitioned. If the drive was in use previously, you'll need to delete all the existing partitions. To do this you'll have to hit the 'D' key followed by the 'L' key. The screen instructions will be visible to guide the process.

Once all the existing partitions are deleted the display will show the total unpartitioned disk space.
Hit the 'C' key to create a partition. Personally i partion mine to 80GB (81920MB)

On the newly created partition, (not the raw one) install XP on that. Carry on with the installation until its final restart, it will be a light blue screen.

Quickly pop the Vista disk into the drive and start the Vista install. When it askes where you want Vista choose the unallocated partition. If you let XP load up first then you will not have the dual boot option on start up.

If you have done this correctly then each time the computer restarts during Vista install you see a boot message on screen saying "older version of window(XP) and Vista.

Lets Vista fully install right up until it loads the welcome screen. Then you can restart the computer, choose older version of windows to complete and load the XP operating system.

You then have to switch between them both to install drivers, software etc.

If you want to use both operating systems at a time then you need a virtual operating system installed but they are not that good as memory is kept at a minimum.

Good luck and please post back if you need anymore advice.

How to break password of windows xp

Fixya does not provide solutions to cracking WIndows XP or other licensed products or applications. This would mean software piracy and is illegal. Save yourself from trouble by acquiring a genuine license key for your own use. This would let you update your version of WIndows and let you install the latest security patches needed.

HP Pavillion dv9000 will not boot up in normal mode, only safe.

Have you tried an XP repair?
Then you can save your data .
XP repair
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Missing shell32.dll file

Go to your bios and make the cd rom the first boot disk.
To get into the bios, usually del key when booting gets you in.
Once you boot from the xp disk, follow the prompts until you get to the screen to hit f8, on the next screen hit R and the system will do a repair with out changing any of your settings.
Be sure to go to Microsoft and run the XP updates.

Limited User access will not open files in software program

boot into safe mode on xp. when you start the computer and the bios screen comes up start tapping the F8 key. it should take you to the boot selection screen. press your arrow keys to get to the selection "Windows Safe Mode" and press enter. when xp loads the login screen, there should be an admin account now. use that account to set users access to admin rights.
if you dont want that user to have admin rights but still start software that requires admin rights, try this. right-click on the program. go to run as... and choose administrator.

please let me know if this helped you :)
