DBP Inquiry

Postby kanaloa » Wed Apr 20, 2011 7:43 pm

Posting this for Ron, who contacted us via email.

Hello,

I have a system with Vista Ultimate on a new sata HD, and XP on a seperate
sata HD which was my old C:/HD.

Will your software enable me to setup a dual boot configuration without
having to reinstall one or both the of operating systems?

If so this will solve my home office computer issues> As after installing
Vista I was unable to re-install a few expensive programs, ie illustrator,
Acrobat etc. As I have exceeded the number of installations allowed, and
would have to purchase new licenses.

So Dual boot would solve my problem. Also have the same issue at my
company.

If your software does the tick, I will purchase for both.

Regards
Ron

John,
We really need some more info, since it appears he either unplugged the xp drive when he installed vista, or he took the xp drive out of his old computer and is trying to put it in his new computer. He needs to post every step on how he got to this point

DBP will definitely help him both with his own and his company installations. It seems to me he either had removed the XP drive when he installed Vista or had unplugged the XP drive. In either event this guide will give the steps to follow to create a dual boot and dual boot menu:

unplugged-xp-drive-for-vista-setup-can-t-dual-boot-to-xp-t84455.html

It will help him if he reads through this guide too:
