    Hello All!

    A question concerning the use of a Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade DVD:

    I would like to be able to retain Windows XP on my computer and, when adding Win7, set it up to dual boot.

    I have read several places that, upon using an upgrade version of Win7, the XP activation key is "invalidated" by Microsoft. If this is true [and it may not be], will I be able to set up my machine to dual boot with the XP OS still working? Any thoughts?

    Thanks!
    Bob Miller

    Just upgrade straight to Windows 7. I never keep the old OS after I'm through.

    Hope this helps.
