Default Operating system quetion

Hey guys,
I just have a quick question that i need to get confirmation on. As i am a frequent member on supraforums i did search but to no avail, unless i didnt use the right words for the search, so heres the question. I would like to run the new windows x64 pro, but id also like to keep my windows xp home installed on this computer too. I am pretty sure i can do this and have both OS's installed and just after the boot screen it will come up asking what os id like to run. but also if i were to run 2 os's on the same hard drive would it automatically copy all my documents or would i have to do this myself? Just would like to know if this would work..


Thanks guys
Chris

How many hard drives do you have?

If you have 2, you can install the Windows X64 on the second hard drive so you wouldn't have problems

Yes! Partition them and then i think you can chose which one to boot from.

I would say you have to partition it and can drag the files over from one installation to the other.
