Dual booting XP and Win 7

Averatec / 6100 series

Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, 2.994 GHz / 2047 MB
I have one drive partitioned as C and E. I have XP on C and Win 7 on E. Both boot and work well. I have Software Restriction Policy in place on XP C: drive. My question is, can I use Win 7's SRP on the drive Win 7 is installed on? I assume they are independent of one another but don't know for sure since I've never dual booted two different OS's before.

Local policy is applied to a single OS unless you applied it to the W7.

If part of a domain then that would be group policy and may be that it is enforced.

Thanks, I went ahead and applied it in Win 7 and see no problems whilst in either OS.
