    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone had ever tried this before. Is it possible to
    dual boot XP and Vista just by changing the boot drive in System Setup?
    I've got 2 different hard drives and I'd like to dual boot XP and Vista. It
    seems to be a topic that's talked about much, but would a simple solution be
    to just put the two on different physical hard drives and then just change
    the boot drive to the desired drive when needed? Is there something that
    I'm not considering?

    Also, I've heard of the issue with XP and Vista screwing up the other's
    system restore points. Would this happen even if the two were installed on
    two different physical hard drives?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    works for me, just remember to disconnect devices that won/t work with
    vista.
    Like I have a older lexmark usb printer, I just unplug it.
