Windows 7: How do I do this?

How do I do this?

Sorry if this is the wrong section, but I'm not quite sure where to put this in.
I'm running Windows 7, with the specs that I have below.

Now I wanted to have both Windows 7, and Windows XP on my PC.
How would I go about doing this?

Like, when I boot, I can choose either to boot into Windows 7, or Windows XP.

You will notice a section in the tutorial which will outline the steps required depending on the OS you have already got installed.

Seeing as you have Ultimate and a laptop XP Mode,

Windows XP Mode - Install and Setup

might be a consideration depending on what you want XP for. Saves having to partition, bootloader, etc.

I want XP for games/software that has issues with Windows 7.

First try installing the problem software in Compatibility Mode

You may need to start the game in Compat mode as well.

What this does is trick the program into thinking it is on XP. Works well in many cases.
