Can I upgrade to Win 7 Prof Upgrade and dual boot w/Win XP SP 3? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have read what I thought was pretty good documentation on the upgrade path from XP SP 3 to Windows 7 Professional upgrade, but maybe I missed the part that assures me I have the option of placing Win 7 Prof in a separate partition next to my current XP SP 3 environment.  I read with a little concern that I would have to use Windows Easy Transfer in order to backup my current user settings and files and then restore them after Win 7 had completed installation.

    Thanks in advance . . .
