Special Win7 multi-boot config.


Many weeks ago I built a new desktop system around an Intel Clarkdale i5-650 and Asus motherboard. Installed a newly licensed copy of Win7-64 Home Premium OEM. After weeks of installing programs, configuring, etc, I find that Win7 is not the system on which I choose to place primary reliance.

I'm used to multi-boot with legacy Windows, allows me to do standalone backups, etc with common partitioning software. I now need XP Pro and my Win7 in multi-boot config.

My Win7 now occupies 2 partitions on one of my 2 new HD's. I need to install XP and consolidate Win7 into the standard single partition (not necessarily in that order).

Is there any way to get to XP/Win7 multi-boot without re-installing Win7?

I have 2 500gb SATA HD's, Partition Wizard, etc to work with.
