Thank you, I know how to do it, I had the 7 partition hidden before I even installed the OS. Just needed to know if it was still necessary, I kinda thought it did.
I just thought of another question. With 7 Pro (and above) if you use the new XP mode, what happens then?
I haven't tried 7's XP mode yet. In XP mode can XP even see the Windows 7 folders and files?
I going to assume that in Windows 7's XP mode that some features of an 'ordinary' XP install (on a separate partition) don't function as you might expect or are suppressed.
