I have a 150GB that I want to partition into a 125 GB for Vista Ultimate, and another 25Gb for XP Pro. How would I go about to do that??? Also, I want to be able to dual-boot.

I only have 1HD (this one) will that be a problem?

What should I do first?

Thanks

First do a partition for XP (25G), install and after install Vista on the rest of disk.

Thatīs it

any real reason to dual boot? (ie programs that wont run in Vista that you absolutely need)

go with Vista, skip the XP.

otherwise follow Wolfhound.

I got it to work and everything, but an error popped up in XP, I forgot the full thing but everytime I tried to open a program it said the configuartions weren't right (and I should reinstall to see if it would work) I did same deal I uninstalled it, the 25GB is still there, maybe sometime in the future ..

BTW I wanted XP for Far Cry 1 mostly, and some other little stuff but, when I played FC with vista, I'd get EVERYTHING white. :(

How did you go about installing vista? You need to put the dvd in the drive and then put the dvd-drive as the primary boot device and boot from the installation disc.
