View Full Version : Dual operating systems



question1
12-15-2000, 11:43 AM
I have a friend that has a Sony computer that is running Windows 95. They recently purchased a scanner which only runs with Win 98/2000 or NT. Is it possible to load Win98 and not format the hard drive? In other words, keep all of the information and software programs that are on the hard drive now and have both operating systems available?

Thanks in advance. Any help is appreciated.

It's possible, but not easy. Keep an eye on this topic, maybe some of the other folks will have some links to post with good info, all I've ben able to find is info about installing Linux and NT on multiple boot systems.

If you look through the forums you'll find some info, This Topic (http://www.pcguide.com/ubb/Forum9/HTML/000190.html) has some good info and a link or three...This Topic (http://www.pcguide.com/ubb/Forum8/HTML/000076.html) also has a couple of good links that may help.

Soon as I come up with all the answers...they change the questions!!
