✔ Best Answer
I don't think that would work. As you know, the Windows XP CD & the Windows 7 DVD have to be bootable in order to install them. The boot code and setup is different for each version, and has to be in the root of the disc. You cannot have two boot codes and setups on the same CD or DVD. How is your system going to know which one to boot from? It will get confused so it will just not boot at all.

if it was possible to do what you want, somebody would have done it by now.

Is it such a hassle to have 2 separate discs?

You may wish to take a look at programs like auto play media studio or easy boot.

Last time I used autoplay...made a bootable dvd , a menu and put all the ms offices on it.

xp and 7 on one dvd ? sure why not?

When you have a system that is multi-booting XP and Windows 7 (or Vista) by using Windows 7's (or Vista's) built in multi-boot feature, ALL of the existing System Restore restore points in Windows 7 (or Vista) are DELETED, EVERY TIME you boot XP !

If that concerns you,

use ezboot systems,it is possible to integrate 2 or more operating systems into one dual layer dvd.
You can also customize your bootable installer by adding utilities and programs like Hiren Boot CD,Driverforge,Acronis and all utilities to one setup.You may also automate the installation process if your familiar with the term-"autorobot" all takes patience and a few click of mouse.
