Greetings All,

I recently set my PC to dual boot either WinXP 32-bit or Win7-64 bit. I need to keep XP as I have some games/apps that will not run in Win 7/64-bit mode. What I need help on is which drivers I should install on the Win 7 side such that it won't disrupt my XP boot side. I have the OS' on different physical HDDs. So far I have only installed drivers for my GTX 460 1GB GPU and for my TrendNet USB Wireless Adapter. Can anyone recommend/suggest which drivers I could install that would optimize my 64-bit use (i.e. motherboard, CPU, etc.) and yet still not disrupt my XP use?

Any help is appreciated.

Chris

You don't have any choice in the matter. Just boot into Win7 64-bit & install the correct Win7 64-bit drivers, then boot into XP & install the correct XP 32-bit drivers there.

Both sets of drivers will be kept separate & loaded separately so there's no way one set can interfere with the other operating system.
