It says xp pro is older than sp2 so installation is not allowed. How do I
install it as i would install SP2 on the second copy... Just make 2 OSes,
one for work and one for fun. Thanks

In order to install a second copy of Windows XP on the same
computer, you need two things:

1. An empty drive or partition.
2. A second Windows XP license.

Please read your End-User License Agreement by going
to Start > Run and type: WINVER , and hit enter. Then
click on "End-User License Agreement".

From the Windows XP EULA:

1.1 Installation and use. You may install, use, access,
display and run one copy of the Software on a single
computer, such as a workstation, terminal or other
device ("Workstation Computer"). The Software may not
be used by more than two (2) processors at any one
time on any single Workstation Computer.


A good third-party partitioning program is Partition Magic 8.

If you already have a retail copy of Windows XP, you can obtain
additional licenses for another computer or laptop by visiting the
following Microsoft Web site:

Create an installation CD slipstreamed with SP2.
