    Install Win2k3 over Visat

    Hi,

    Can i install XP, server 2003 on the same computer where Vista is
    installed? Vista takes over the boot menu and the system can still
    boot to older versions of Windows but not sure what happens if
    installing older versions on a Vista machine.

    Thanks

    Timmy

    Are you talking about a clean install so there is only the Server OS
    replacing Vista, or a dual boot.

    If the former, yes just do a clean install. If you mean wanting to retain
    Vista and have a dual boot, that can be done too.

    to OP:
    if you install an older OS once vista is installed you can use VistaBootPro to fix the boot menu back to multi booting.
