Any way to replace WIN98 with Vista in dual boot?

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Dennis Gordon, Sep 30, 2006.

  1. I've just about moved everything from my old home computer to the new one,
    so I'm thinking of running vista on the old one. I have an unused fast scsi
    drive, so I thought I'd replace the boot drive (WIN98) with it. That still
    leaves in intact XP Pro install on the 2nd drive. Is there any to set up a
    dual boot with the existing XP installation after I set up Vista? This will
    be for playing around, so I'm willing to put up with a moderate amount of
    misery.

  3. Make sure you have plenty of space for Vista - 20GB is recommended. Colin
