I don't know how can I have two windows

Specs: Windows 7
I need a windows 7 and a windows XP at the same time but every time I install them both I can only use one of them and I can't even get in the other one.I've seen in some computers that in the beginning it asks them which windows you wanna enter.

It rather depends upon what you mean by "at the same time". If you want both to run together then you need to use a VM such as VirtualBox.

But I read your post to mean you want to be able to boot into one or the other. You need to partition your disk and install the two Windows on the separate partitions. Install XP first and then 7.

Google "dual boot" for futher information.

If they are both already installed on separate partitions or separate hard drives you can run a start up repair on the Windows 7 using an install disk or a Windows 7 repair disk and you should be offered the option of the dual boot there.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
