    Hey all,

    I have a hard drive that i want to clone. The drive is a boot drive. I have a copy of XP on it. My other drive which i'm currently booting from has a copy of Vista on it. The vista boot loader gives me the option of picking vista or xp. If i pick XP i believe the XP boot loader takes over and then boots XP.

    So what product would i need to clone the XP drive onto a new drive so that I can still multi boot into vista or xp?

    Hello merk,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    We are sorry for the delayed response.

    As I understand, you want to replace the drive your Windows XP installation is on with another drive, keeping it in the same computer. For this purpose I would recommend you using Acronis True Image 10.0 Home. You can find the detailed instructions on how to use Acronis True Image 10.0 Home in the respective User's Guide. Please also take a look at this article regarding transferring your operating system to another drive.

    Thank you.
