Hi Darren - you have two choices. You can install it on the same drive as your current operating system. If your current drive has only one partition you will have to use a third party partition manager to create a bootable partition to install your second operating system. Third party managers such as partition magic or you can get some free ones from this site: http://www.thefreecountry.com/utilities/partitioneditors.shtml

Your other choice is a second hard drive.

If you do the first make sure to do a backup before you anything. You don't want to lose any data.

Of course you can always do a clean install on your hard drive and create two partitions, one for each operating system but it sounds to me like you have too much info that you'd lose and software to reinstall.

If this answers your question PLEASE rate this as fixed. If not and you need more help just holler. You can always rate fixed and later add a comment if you need more help and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Jeff

No solution now, Install Windows XP again on first partition, Make sure BOOT.INI, NTLDR, NTDETECT.COM in the same partition in which Windows XP is loaded. Then install WIndows 8.
OR in the current scenario you've to do much technical work using third-party tools.
