    I'd like to keep Win7 but mostly use XP until I can resolve a number of Win7 issues. My Win7 version is Home Premium so I can't use Windows XP Mode. Can I just install XP in a separate partition and do some kind of multiboot? Thanx.

    Actually, I would have made the partition 60GB

    With all the applications you may be installing, Windows Updates, patches, Service packs,etc

    Did you try the install yet?

    No, Windows 7 Will Take priority and it will be on the c: drive

    What OS is installed now.

    Could you post a screen shot of Disk Management (ope the window a little larger so we can see the whole partitioning scheme.
