|Multiple boot instances of XP|
I am looking to have 9 different instances of Windows XP Pro that I can boot from on 1 HDD.
I have software that clashes with each other, so I need to install them separately. I have tried installing 9 different virtual machines and using which ever VM I need, but there seems to some slight hardware issues.
The machines I am running have 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, AMD X2 250 CPU, so they are more than capable of running the VM, but I was looking for a possible fix using the way stated above.
Is this possible, and when I boot from any instance of XP, will it automatically assign itself as drive C, or will each partition be assigned a fixed letter? Is this an issue for installing software, I thought it may have been as some software seem to have paths pointing to the C: as default, and I cant seem to override them.
Any help people?
