Can I hot key swap between XP and Vista Dual Boot (controlled by Bootit)
Posted on 2008-11-05
I have (with a lot of help) created a Dual Boot system:
Dell XPS Dimesion
XP PRO 32 bit 2 gig ram, (My board can only see 2 gig on the 32 bit system)
Vista Home Premium 64 bit, 8 gig ram (but the same board can see 8 gig on the 64 bit system...go figure that one out (Dell Tech Support could not!)
Bootit ng used to Dual boot. Both XP and Vista reside on the same HD and Bootit works its magic to make each OS think it is using the C partition.
But I have found I can not load (at least) one major application I use all the time (DragonNaturallySpeaking PRO V10) on the Vista 64 OS. I have to go back to the XP 32 OS in order to use it.
I have seen in other threads that it is possible to run both at the same time and hot swap, but I need to know if I can (and how I can), do this when I am using Bootit at boot time to select which OS I want to fire up.
Would appreciate advise on this one.
