Can I install XP in Win7 partition

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.
