Windows 7: Tricky Dual-Boot Question

Tricky Dual-Boot Question

I have a dual-boot of Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit on separate partitions. I want to replace the Windows 7 32-bit partition with Windows XP and keep the Windows 7 64-bit partition. What's the easiest way to do this?

Hi Arch,

It explains how to install XP after 7 and still be able to boot into both.

That is what you are you doing - albeit you will replace one of your existing 7 partitions with XP.

The principle is the same.

If there is a part you don't follow, feel free to ask .

Hope it helps
