I have a new Toshiba Laptop with 2 Hard Drives, Vista loaded on to C:\ would XP load onto E:\? this is the Other Hard Drive letter. Also would I need to load the Sata Drivers again for to load XP as it will not go onto C:\ unless I first load Sata Drivers This is a Problem as it's a Large file and looks complex on loading. as the File looks like it's for loading in a windows environment not DOS

You do mean two separate HDD's?

Can you not duel boot on one drive and use other for all data?

Yes there are two 60Gb drives in this Laptop giving 160Gb Vista is on C:\ I would rather load XP to the other drive So I can back it up with Acronis. In Case it goes wonky

Hi you have to install xp first then vista otherwise it screws up the boot record. to sort this see windows help no 919529

ps windows install stops during setup and says to press a key (cannot remember which) to load additional drivers

That should read two 80Gb drives
