Default Re: Dual-core & XP plus some other issues

Hi guys.
Sorry, I have another question relating to the dual-boot system I have in mind.

If installed software or anything that adds important registry values etc onto one partition, can I still run that software (i.e game) when I've booted from the other partition without any issues?

My idea is to have my 320gig hdd split into 2 160gig partitions. Games and Media (music, art, etc) on one partition, the Vista one... and the other all my work and software I use (XP).

Thanks
-Rhys

It depends,Will you be using the game in the same operating system in which you installed it?

E.g You Install Crysis In XP and Play it through XP.

Or will you be installing it through one operating system and playing it through another

E.g Install crysis in XP and Play in Vista

You will enjoy dual core and 64 bit once they make software more applicable to it.
