This tutorial will show you how to install Microsoft Windows Vista
in a dual boot option with Microsoft Windows XP. This is great choice
when you first migrate to Vista. If there are any problems, you can
simply boot into XP and get important work done.
In order to install Windows Vista in a dual-boot configuration along
with Windows XP, you need to have either a second partition on your
existing hard disk or a second hard disk in your system. You will want
to have about 20 GB of free space. You can create a new partition on
your existing drive using software such as Partition Magic or Partition
Expert (which I recommend), both are available online.
Once you have your second partition or second hard disk operational,
just insert your Windows Vista disk and restart the machine. Then you
will want to boot from CD (or DVD). You should see a screen letting you
know that Windows Vista is loading.
The default settings are set for English, click next to continue.
Now select the Install Now button .
Now you will need to enter your Microsoft Windows Vista serial
number. By default Windows Vista will activate you copy after
installation, you can unselect this option is you wish. I recommend
un-checking the box, simply because Microsoft may lock your serial key
if it is activated too many times, this could happen if you are
experimenting and have to reinstall Vista, or if you decide to install
Vista by itself later on.
At this point in the installation, you’re prompted to type in your product key for activation.
If you decide to disable the automatic activation routine, you will receive a warning. Click yes to continue.
If you didn’t enter a serial key, the setup will prompt you for the
version of Microsoft Windows Vista that you are using. Select the
correct version for your license.
Now you must agree to Microsoft’s Terms. Of course they are completely absurd, but you have now choice.
On the Which Type Of Installation Do You Want Page click the Custom (advanced) button.
On the Where Do You Want To Install Windows? Select your second partition or second hard drive.
Once the select a partition or disk and click Next, the rest of the
installation will continue as it normally would. As such, I won’t
follow the installation procedure any further in this article.
Once the installation is complete, you’ll see the Windows Boot Manager
screen, you can now select which operating system you will boot into.
Select Microsoft Windows Vista
You can change the boot manager settings if you would like, if not
then you can stop reading. Go to Control Panel, System, Advance System
Setting link in the Tasks pane and confirm though the UAC prompt. When
you see the System Properties dialog box, click Settings in the Startup
and Recovery panel. You’ll then see the Startup and Recovery dialog box.
In the System Startup pane, you can change the settings.
