BUT for install XP you need do a clean installation of XP. barron14 December 27, 2009 12:27:37 PM Sorry what do you mean a clean installation of XP? Related resources Budget $600 build.

A clean installation is an installation from the begining, doing the partition and everything else. Or like patmcgroind said, install a dual-boot.
