How do I install Windows 2008 Server on a XP Pro
Posted on 2009-05-03
My company may purchase Windows Server 2008. But before the purchase, I would like to use the trial version and got some feeling. We got a XP Pro which is not used often and I'm thinking to make a dual boot with XP Pro and Windows Server 2008. I assume such dual boot is possible, but is there a potential danger?
The machine running XP Pro now has two IDE drives. My plan is to keep XP Pro on C:\ and place Windows Server 2008 on D:\. Before installing Windows Server 2008, I could create a disk image of C:\ first and restore C:\ in case anything bad happens.
Is there any suggestion? What would be the proper steps to build this kind of dual boot?
Any suggestion is appreciated. One more thing. I'm new in Expert Exchange. Can I assign points to all postings responding to my question? (Or I can just assign points to the solution that I choose?)
