    Can This Be Done?

    I have Windows 7 64 bit home premium on one hard drive and Windows XP on a separate hard drive (not just different partitions). I want to be able to power up the computer and choose whether to boot up in Win 7 or in XP. Can this be done, and how do I set it up?

    Put the XP hard drive in the PC running Windows 7 and add XP to the Windows 7 bootmgr using EasyBCD. Piece of cake.

    It's a little more involved than that, but it isn't difficult.
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!
