    Just a simple question:
    Is it possible to ´make a dual-boot system with
    NT and Win2000?
    If so, wich one should you install first?

    Why the hell would you want to do that?!! :eek:

    I think Partition magic would be the only way to succesfully do that

    I can see the reason behind dual-booting XP and an older windows, or Win2000/WinME or Win2000/Win98, but why Win2000/WinNT?

    Not ragging... just curious.

    Well... it's not really a DAW question.
    But since this is the only place I know with that kind of knowledge, I thought I'd ask.
    I'm looking for a new job... (teching "Windows-Office" and database ) And when I talked to them they said that every 7th week they reformatted the HD's (on 9 computers) and installed NT for their Database-class( needed for their network).... and 7 weeks later, reformated the drives to install Win2k for the Office-classes.... and so on.
    It seems to me like a complete "waist" of time to do this. So if I will get to an interview for that job... I thought that I could maybe give them another solution.
    I would really like to get the job.
    I've been thinking of running their computers with 2 HD's and HD-trays... but a dual boot-system would be less expensive....
    So I will check out Partition magic.
    Thanks a lot for the input. :)
