Dualboot xp64/32 with 64 installed first
Mar 4, 2010, 11:24 AM
I am sorting out dualboot for someone and they would like32bit and 64 bit xp dualboot
They already have xp 64 bit installed with alot of data on the partition so I need to install 32 bit after 64bit
Does this require extra steps with bootloader type stuff? as 32bit is older than 64bit?
If it does require extra steps could someone point me in the right direction (I can find answers to almost every imaginable dualboot question except this 1)

It should not. After you install x64, you can edit the boot.ini file on the x86 installation with a text editor like wordpad to change the default boot order.
