I am trying again using your tutorial (which is how I did it initally, lets hope it works this time).
I have 3 hard drives, one for XP with a 10gig partition for a page file, one for 7 with same 10 gig for page file and a final drive I store non-program data on.
If XP first then 7 install doesn't work this time I'll try 7 then XP and as a last resort I will use the boot loader from SUSE 10. Never used it with 2 windows installs though.
Has anyone else had dual boot issues with a 64 bit and non-64 bit version?
Sorry to reply to an old post, but just so others know it is possible to use Win7 x64 and XP x86 as a dual boot. Got mine setup last night, they are on the same HDD. Everything seems to be working fine.
