    I was wondering.... is it possible to dual boot the same copy of XP on te same computer, in order to have one for work and everyday use and one for testing or whatever?

    HURST,

    Sure. You can have 100 partitions of WinXP if you like. Microsoft don't mind and will activate each copy as you can only use one at a time. It's a different situation with Virtual Machines. You need a license for each OS.

    Thanks.

    Maybe I'll try it when I feel like playing with my laptop again...

    I suppose you don't have the full version of FDISR,if so then the proposed solution will also work. ;)

    I followed Dan's tutorial and had 15 WinXPs on the one HD. I used BING as the boot manager. I recall it was all completed in an hour or two using a single basic WinXP image.
