I just bought a SYSTEM WITH WINDOWS 8 and after the first day I am not happy with this new system, I am all ready having issues with iTunes and my biggest problem I can't run the latest version of AutoCAD, I would like to try and dual boot, I have a clean windows XP which has never been installed,, I have already partitioned my hard drive, my system came with a 2T hard dive,, I have left 500 gb for windows xp.. is there a program that I can install that will help me dual boot????

Windows is designed with dual-booting of itself (including different versions) in mind.
- Thus: You do not require a 3rd party application to partition and 'boot manage' your HDD, since you have partitioned it yourself.

Being Windows XP I would recommend having it within the first 137GB of the HDD if possible, so long as it is Service Pack 1 or later anything in the first 2TB should be fine to boot from though.
