Just managed to get windows xp pro on a 1tb hard drive and then installed windows 7 on it as well. Rebooted and seemed to have lost xp so searched for a dual boot option and all sorted now. XP pro for my maps, email etc and windows 7 for a server if i ever get it going Laughing
Have to have my email on xp as windows 7 removed outlook express among other things.

To dual boot with xp and windows 7:
If you've been using Windows XP for a while now and want to try out window 7 or vista, you might have tried dual booting!
In that case once you installed windows 7 or vista, you may have noticed that your windows XP entry has disappeared. But do not worry. Your windows XP is still there. The only problem is windows 7 just overwrote the windows xp bootloader. This is a easy fix. Just follow the steps below.

Open an elevated command prompt (Start > type "cmd" > right click on "cmd" > run as administrator)

To create an entry for Windows XP type the following. You can replace "windows XP" with any name that you want it to show.

   bcdedit /create {ntldr} /d "Windows XP"


Now specify the partition where windows XP is installed. Here I have used my E partition. Choose the partition (B, C, D, E, F) where you installed your XP.

   bcdedit /set {ntldr} device partition=E:


Now to set the path type...

   bcdedit /set {ntldr} path
tldr


Type the following to add this boot loader to the boot up screen.

   bcdedit /displayorder {ntldr} /addlast



Restart and you are done!
