Question 4 da geeks....

My laptop came with Vista.

None of my old games like gangsters or jagged alliance work.

I need Win XP.

Is it possible to have Vista n XP on the same computer? If so - how do you it?

basically, i want to have a 100 gig to XP and a 100 to Vista. I'm sure there is a way to create a partition in the hard drive.

Does anybody know how to do it or where i can get it done from?

Thnx in advance..

Years ago people were using partition magic. Not sure if it's compatible with Vista.

You'll need to boot the Windows XP cd through Vista, do NOT boot the XP cd through the bios, cause then it won't give you an option to set a partition or keep any of your old data.

You can try looking for patches for the game designers. That is what I did for all of my old Star Trek games to run them on my new Vista computer.
