May be it is a silly question but i think its worth to me if it done.
I had worked on windows 7 ultimate but as you all know that there are still some software which doesn't work on windows 7 so I came back on windows XP. Now i want a dual boot pc and for that I have install the Windows XP first and now plan to install the windows 7.
My question is that is it possible to Boot from windows 7 if in any case I format the Windows XP. And I have a 500 GB external hard disk is it possible to install the windows 7 on it and boot Windows XP without this hard disk if sometime I want. For this I searched out this instruction but don't know how to follow them.
****Connect device to system and format it,now lets assume your external device has been assigned the letter D: and your cd rom drive the letter E:.Now open run ,in search box enter these: E:\I386\winnt32.exe /syspart:D: /tempdrive:D: /makelocalsource /noreboot .
Now press on Ok.
Now the installation wizard will appear on screen.This will take more time than installing widnows on a system.
After installation you can remove the hard disk and use on another computer. ****
I mean if we set the system on dual boot it doesn't start until it doesn't find the second OS which is install through it. So i want to get rid of from this issue. Is it possible.
