Dual boot - How to hide XP System Drive


T

Thomas Jespersen

Hi

My disk has 4 partitions:

86MB Primary - DELL Utility (EISA Configuration).
24GB Primary - Windows XP System Drive (C-drive under XP, D-drive under
Vista)
34GB Primary - Windows Vista System Drive (C-driver under Vista, hidden
under XP)
34GB Extended - Data partition (D-driver under XP, E-drive under Vista)

Now the question is.... how do I hide the Windows XP System Drive when I'm
booted in to Vista?

Oh boy... do I miss the days when we had the OS/2 boot manager.

Use a 3rd party boot manager. I recommend BootIt NG: very easy to use.

If you want to make sure WinXP doesn't delete
Vista's System Restore points, you need to hide
Vista from XP.
