Hi am new to the forums and i have a question. I have Windows 7 Pro 64 running from a Vertex 3. I also have a spare hard drive ( Seagate Momentus XT) that i use for storage and i want to install Windows XP on it. Are there any potential risks in doing that? Will it mess up my Windows 7 installation? I tried installing XP(SP3 and SATA drivers
integrated) with a bootable CD. While it sees my drives it does not recognize that there is data on the Seagate and wants me to delete the partition. Is there a way around that? Also will the installation of XP be safer if i unplug the SSD while installing XP? Thanks very much in advance.
PS: also the seagate drive has a 100MB EFI system partition. Is that needed to boot win 7?
