Just a few questions: AMD64 Xenon Quad Core, 8 gigs of RAM. I have a 750Gb hard drive (along with a second 500Gb hard drive, if this is relevant or germane in any way to this discussion). Partition1: Primary, Active, 375Gb, XP64, C:\ Partition2: Logical, 375Gb, NTFS, empty/blank, D:\ Want to install Win 7 to this partition, partition 2, and a create dual boot scenario. If I understand correctly, I need to (assuming I am in xp64): a) Mark part1 as hidden and NOT active..... b) Mark part2 as active/primary c) Reboot to Win7 install CD d) Install Win7, then boot into Win7 e) either via installation of paragon BM into Win 7 OR Linux recovery CD and re-boot TO that CD, activate/set-up Paragon BM correctly, then I have a dual boot machine. Am I "off the plantation" here, or do I have it down, pretty much, correctly? Anything I am overlooking/missing? BTW, just ditched Acronis for several annoying reasons. I like paragon much better thus far...FWIW. Too many annoying quirks with Acronis --- too many "undocumented features"...lol Also, of course I have a Paragon backup image of my present HD configuration. Thanks in advance for any insight.
