As much as you want.

Now that you say you only need XP on there to run 32 bit, how about just putting 32bit Win7 on there? You should have the disk in your package, and it should allow install and activation on the same computer.

Someone can please correct me if I am wrong, but I saw on this forum today that you can install Win7 dual boot on the same computer and keep activated with no problem?
I remember seeing the same thing.

On a side note,right click the program you want to run in the 32bit OS>compatability>tick the box>select XP service pack 2

This will allow you to run a program in XP mode.

A dual boot Win7 32/64 would see the same hardware config and IP addy. Both should stay activated. Anyone know different?

Go back into partition wizard,delete all partitions EXCEPT the main one (the big one) then create (use ALL space)>then format>set as primary.
Run Xp disc again

you cannot delete unallocated space, just create a partition there to format
