Windows 7: File sharing after setting up a dual boot

02 Jun 2011   #1

Dual boot Windows 7 professional, XP professional, 32 bit
File sharing after setting up a dual boot

Thanks for the directions set up dual booting XP and Windows 7. I was able to add Windows 7 to a system that previously booted XP.

Two possibly related questions:

1. In order for my Windows 7 OS be able to read/write existing files created by XP, I gave complete control to everyone. Is there a better, safer way? The computer name is JIM-PC for Windows 7 and JIM-XP for XP. The user name is Jim for both systems.

2. I can't find the CD for my legal copy of Microsoft Office 2003. Is there any way to install it in Windows 7 without the CD or allow using the XP installation from Windows 7?
