Windows 7: Windows 7/XP Install Disk

Windows 7/XP Install Disk

Is it possible to create a Windows 7/XP Install disk or bootable USB so you can select which OS you want to install?

Yes it's possible. I can think of many ways. But none of them seem worth while considering 2 discs and/or 2 usb devices can all fit in one small case.

ooh ok! which way would you recommend as the easiest?
(by the way, is it possible to create a custom screen/menu to select the OS install?
It'd also be cool to include x64 and x86 Windows 7 in the same disk (obviously I would have to use a dual layered disk).

The easiest way is to cheat and copy all of the Windows 7 setup files to a folder on a Windows XP installation DVD or to a WinPE environment. but that will not give you a menu unless you created your own boot loader and menu on the DVD.

Perhaps someone has already done all of the work and made a nice utility to do precisely that.

P.S. - here are the steps to combine 32-bit and 64-bit on the same DVD. Combine x86 and x64 into 1 DVD (Vista or 7) (there used to be a tutorial on this forum but I can't find it)
