Does anyone know how to embed WinXP Home in VISTA Home?
And, will the hardware peripherals (printer, scanner, etc.) supported by XP also be supported by such embedded WinXP?
Would appreciate any support.
A healthy, happy and prosperous New Year to fellow-translators.

Hm. Dec 30, 2008

Can you explain more what do you actually need, that is, what do you mean by embedding here? Is it dual boot, using virtual machine, or something else?

Parallels Dec 30, 2008

You can try Parallels software for multiple OSs or you can create a partition, install a different OS and dual boot.

If you use google you will find pretty many tutorials on how to do that.

Start VISTA and 'click' on WinXP icon to run WinXP Dec 30, 2008

Hello Miroslav
Not a dual boot - an option that is already available to me, rather I imagine a WinXP-icon on VISTA desktop that I can click and can run WinXP.

os level virtualization Dec 30, 2008

looks like you need virtualization program. you can try the freeware virtual box.
i don't see the benefit of installing windows on another windows though.

No, that would be impossible. Of course, you could run it inside a virtual machine as it's already suggested, but embedding it in the way you want is not possible; at least I never heard of such way.icon_smile.gif

Reportedly, some software will not run on Vista as it does on Windows XP. Maybe that is the purpose of this exercise.

Regards,

Piotr
