Hi Guru's,

Does the latest intel i3 330 processor support Windows Xp service pack2? I bought a new laptop recently with windows 7 preinstalled, i want windows xp sp2 in that? Can i do dual boot windows 7 & Xp-sp2 in that? My laptop configuration is Intel I3 processor, 3GB RAM, 320GB HDD. Please help me...

Thanks

For dual boot, you need the partitions set up appropriately. In all likelihood, you will need to re-partition the Hard drive, and then re-install Win 7, and also Win XP. Do you have the disks to do that? Some Win 7 applications have the capability of 'XP Mode' built in. (I have Win 7 Professional 64-bit, and it has the XP Mode feature. I use it for older XP programs. Works well).

Uma, what version of Win 7 do you have? Only the "Professional" and "Ultimate" versions have the built-in 'XP-Mode"

Sorry Uma, XP-Mode is not available on Win 7 Home Premium.
Only available on Win 7 Professional as well as Win 7 Ultimate.

That's great Uma! With Win 7 Ultimate, you will have no problems installing Virtual PC, Win XP-Mode. Follow these instructions:
For Win 7 64-bit: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.as...
For Win 7 32-bit: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.as... (same instructions)

Print out the instructions, then download 'Windows XP Mode', then download 'Windows Virtual PC', and then download the Updates (if you do not have Service Pack 1).

After all downloads are complete, you must install a separate 'Anti-Virus' program on this Virtual PC and regularly update it. (It's like having another XP PC running within your Win 7 PC). That's why you need a separate Anti Virus program for the Virtual PC in addition to the Anti Virus program you have on the Win 7 PC.

Now you can install older XP programs on this Virtual PC. I use it for older AutoCad as well as for a Project Management program that will run on XP, but not on Win 7.

Thank you Uma! One final note. Don't forget to install an anti-virus on the Virtual PC. and update the AV regularly. This is separate from the AV that you have for Win 7.

Consider it as a Win 7 computer AND a separate XP computer (2 separate AV required).

Good luck!
