How to install two operating systems on one PC
In this article I want to tell how to install two operating systems on one computer. Usually when we buy a computer, we have one hard drive, and it is divided into two logical ones. This is the drive (C 🙂 on which we install the system and the drive (D :), where we store our files: movies, photos, music and more.
We cannot install the second system on the disk (D :), since it will be formatted and all our important data will be deleted, there is already a system on the disk (C :), and although you can install two systems on one partition, I do not recommend you , nothing good will come of it.
All that remains is the din option – to create another logical partition on your hard drive. Here is the answer to the question of how to install two systems. It is necessary to create an additional partition for another system. In this article I will not teach you this, because I have written a lesson on this topic for a long time, you can read and learn: “How to create a partition on your hard drive”.
So, what you need to have to install two systems. Firstly, we must have disks with systems for installation, and secondly, at least three partitions on the hard drive.
Let me tell you in practice.
After creating another partition, we got what we have, the drive (C :), (D :), and (F :). On the drive (C 🙂 we will install Windows XP, on (F 🙂 Windows 7, and on (D 🙂 we will have all the necessary files. In this way, you can install two operating systems on your computer and go into any of them.
By the way, if you do not understand computers very well, then I do not advise you to try to install Windows XP if you already have the “seven” installed. After reinstalling, no system can boot at all.
If you want to install two systems, Windows 7 and XP. Then they need to be installed as they exit. And the first Windows XP came out back in 2001, so we install it on disk (C 🙂 FIRST, and then we install another section from Windows 7, this is the 2009 system.
In a word, we put first XP, and then 7.
And if we already have a Seven, but we also want XP, what should we do?
In this case, instead of the “seven” we install “XP” on the drive where it is located, and only then install Windows 7 on another partition.
Good luck I wish you successfully install two systems.
