Dualbooting XP and Longhorn

Post by perry »

Hello,i was wondering if you can dualboot with XP and Longhorn?
I already installed XP first and the LH build i want to Install is 3718.
Does it automatically create a bootloader or not? just wondering.

BTW the PC is A HP Compaq. It has everything required for Longhorn.

and here are the Specs:
Processor: Intel Pentium 4 2.80Ghz/2.79Ghz
RAM: 512 MB
Graphic Card: NVIDIA Geforce FX5200

ive decided to do some researchs and someone did say that if i install LH on a different HDD instead of the one where XP is installed it will make a bootloader.

I also have another question.. are pre-resets builds only the ones that automatically create a bootloader?

Yes because the post-reset builds (except 3790.1232) use BOOTMGR.

No, virtually all builds should be able to detect an already installed copy of Windows and automatically set up a boot menu, as long as you install the older version first. Post-reset Longhorn might use a new boot manager, but it's still able to chainload NTLDR just fine.
AlphaBeta, stop brainwashing me immediately!

If you installed a BOOTMGR build first and then installed the old version and can’t get into your BOOTMGR version of Windows, check out this topic on how to install Windows XP with 7 already installed, which basically applies to any NTLDR OS with a BOOTMGR OS already installed.
