    No, one has to reboot and choose one of the operating systems.
    Consider running XP in a Virtual machine with Windows 7 as the main OS.

    Invest a little time and energy in a well thought out BACKUP regimen and you will have minimal down time, and headache.

    Build your own system; get everything you want and nothing you don't.
