What version if the Win7 do u have? Like ldh1109 wrote, xp mode is great option, but u cant play the games in it.

If you have Win 7 Pro then yes you can use XP mode (XP mode is a slightly modified 32-bit version of XP).

It doesn't offer 3-d acceleration though so if you are looking to play old games that won't work. For 3-d acceleration you will need to download Virtual Box and install a valid copy of XP in a new Virtual Machine.

if your dell xps is a latest one , its difficult to find drivers (mainly audio)for it (only for xp).You can use virtual xp (one kind of s/w) in win7 for your work.

yes, it is possible.
-first you install win xp drive C
-2nd you insert win 7 dvd and select new installation and also select drive "D" or another drive except drive "C".

Note: dont select upgrade install while installing win 7.
