I have looked through previous posts and some come very close to answering my query but as an unforced error at my end is not acceptable I think it best I ask the experts.
My old (very old) machine running XP snuffed it (MB burnt out). As it wasn't cost effective to get a new MB/CPU combo vs a new machine I opted for the new Advent 2102. Cheap and cheerful and it works well.
I also bought a Dynamode caddy so I could transfer all data via usb from the 'old' Cdrive to a folder on the new machine. This worked reasonably well although for some reason some files were deemed outside of current permissions (seemed to be the odd zip file and modelsupport folders in Delphi projects. I can live with that but I would like to find out why)
So, I have a new Windows 7 machine and have not lost any data. However what I am now faced with a reinstall of Delphi 2005, Indy and whatever 3rd party components I had and all the updates upgrades etc since the original install.
This can be a pain to get right.
Therefore I want to find out how to Dual Boot into either the current new Windows 7 drive or the old XP drive (which I can connect via the usb caddy or internally using the unused IDE port of the G31MX-K MB in the Advent)
What steps do you recommend I take?
