  1. Do you mean dual booting Windows 7 and an earlier version of Windows? If so, people like to dual boot Windows 7 and XP because some of the software / programs they have are compatible with one of the operating systems but not both.

    since SSD tend to be on the high end of the price spectrum and the low end of the capacity spectrum, many people opt to go for a smaller, faster SSD as a boot drive so their computer (i.e Windows) starts up faster and then go with a larger "traditional" mechanical drive for everyday use, since they are cheaper and easier to find.

    Do you have any links/advice on how to do this? I am about to google it since I can't seem to find a search feature within TH forums.
