I have 2 hard drives.. one has xp on it, and one has vista. I was wondering if there's a way to run the other hard drive inside vista. I have looked at Virtual PC, but I don't think that's what I'm looking for.

you mean like a dual boot? ... that would just need the boot.ini editing.... or do you mean like running vista and then having xp running from some sort of window?

I'm sorry if I'm being unclear... I was inquiring about what Dude_se said. I want to have XP running inside Vista like in a application window. Thanks for the help :D

I looked at that, but it appeared to me that I couldn't run off a different hard drive... that I had to setup a new windows XP inside the vista hard drive in a virtual pc file.

I cant think of anyway to do it apart from using VPC or VMWare, but they are both virtual

Ok.. thanks for the help. I just wanted to use XP inside of Vista because it's a pain to dual boot of different hard drives.
