    Better to have a separate partition for each OS.

    possible but not recommended.

    when installing, chose not to delete/format current drive.
    chose advanced options and change the path from C:\windows to something else (like C:\winXP)
    or use Win7's VHD.
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.
    Please do not PM me for support. You will NOT get a reply. Post in the relevant forum section.

    its not a good idea to install two windows OS under same drive letter
    even if you seperate the windows folder, you cant seperate the program files and some other folders..
    so eventually you will face an access violation from both OS

    and, you can install XP/Vista/Se7en at any order, if you know how to use EasyBCD
