On the topic of Windows 7 creates a small system partition. I have been working on a friends new Compaq Presario CQ5320F that came with Windows Home Edition 64-bit installed, and I have been going crazy trying to get XP to dual boot from another partition on the same drive once I have shrunk the Win 7 partition. I was getting desperate and going through my bag pf "tricks" utilities. I tried Spotmau 2010 Powersuite and looked under their "Partition Genius", sorry that's what they call it! Partition Genius showed that first partition "marked"as "hidden" and I hadn't run across this information anywhere else. I think in my case (with the Compaq) (Compaq is always doing something screwy) and I guess my question is,
"would it be a good or bad idea to "unhide" that first partition? Partition Genius offers the option to do this, but is it a good idea to do along with your program "DualBootPro"? I am new to your product and don't know if this will improve the odds of success or make them worse.
