Hello,

I'm running XP Pro 64 Bit, OEM version, on a partition of my 500GB HD. I want to install a dual boot Windows 8 on a partition of my second internal 250 GB HD.

Firstly, does it make any difference if I install Windows 8 in a partition on the 250 GB HD, or is it advisable to install it on a second partition on the 500GB HD?

Secondly, since I am running an OEM version of XP, does this affect the copy of Windows ( I should be thinking of buying?

Obvioulsy I'll be going for 64 bit, but since XP is "linked" to the Motherboard, does it matter if I install a Windows 8 OEM on a dual boot system?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks Blackbird!

My real concern was whether two OEMs could be linked to one MB. But that just about answers it.
