Dual Boot Installation issue
Trying to add dual boot and xp pro x64 following instructions in posting "Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP by Brinks 04-28-09"
Refer to: METHOD TWO Windows 7 installed first.
In step 2. it says to insert XP installer disc and reboot. Wait for prompt to press any key to boot.
My question is: why does my computer open windows 7 instead of prompting me to boot the XP installation by pressing any key. I rearranged my BIOS to USB/CDROM to boot first.
My second question is: must I defer from the instrucrions above and delete windows from my computer and later try to add windows 7 after XP is running? If so, how do I delete Windows?
