Faster OS changing method

Hi.
At the time I have two operational systems: Windows XP SP3 x86 and Windows7 Home Premium x86.
Because of my computer is pretty old and slow, Most of the time(for gaminf and work) I use WindowsXP, but for movies and music I like to use Windows7.
Everything would be just fine, but i really hate restarting my computer, so I can change my OS.
Is there any other way to change my OS without restarting my computer, I want to do this faster.
Thanks.

Do you have 2 independent installations on 2 seperate disks or do you have a double booting setup.

No... The reason that you have to restart your computer, is that each OS has different drivers, registry settings that need to be loaded in order for the OS to run...
