Once the new partition is created how do u put all your programs in it to free up the system drive?...just drag and drop?

As I do experiments with my computer now and then, If 7 corrupts I can be in my work thus.
To accomplish this, unplug Win7 HD when you install XP.

When you plug the Win7 drive back in, set it first HD to boot in BIOS setup (after DVD drive).

Then use the shortcut key given on first BIOS splash screen for Boot Menu to boot XP HD instead.

Once in Win7, remove XP drive letter in Disk Mgmt and it will be invisible to Win7.

Drag and drop is fine. To link User files to their OS folder, use this:

And in xp disk management, can I remove the win 7 drive letter to make win 7 partition invisible in xp ?
