Use this. It's how I get to Fedora and 7.

No you do not have delete windows 7 before installing XP, it is just easier if you install XP first because you will not have to fix the bootloader.

Has anyone tried this, or did we just ignore it?

I have used it on many occasions, does the same thing as VistaBootPRO mentioned on the first page.

I've used both VistaBootPro and EasyBCD and find easyBCD the better of the two of course my opinion only & YMMV

COL - crying out loud.

I have problem with XP install, try to solve but takes to many time so I decide to delete (format) main disk and 2nd disk and install first xp (becuse I borrow my vista dvd) than win7. I lost all my settings (win7 mail accounts, lost programs, cs4, office, windvd, adobe, antivir,..) but I manage to install XP sp2 (cd I find in my collection) and Win7, then install COD WOW but - COD refuse to work, same problem I had with win7.

I try everything (download few versions of directx, deamon, burn dvd,..), after few hours trying I decide to reboot and try from win7 - and it works.
