Hi Gang,

I have a laptop with Windows XP ntfs. With Partition Magic I want to make a separate partition then ghost the primary partition onto it and set it to dual boot. Should this work OK?

Many thanks,
Mikeybear.

PS respect to cscgal and thanks to Happygeek for previous advice.

Yes, it should work. Make sure you don't erase the NTFS partition :cheesy: , and that Windows XP installs in the empty space created by Partition Magic.

Piece of cake.

Many thanks joeprogrammer. I'll take a deep breath and give it a go... mikeybear
