Hi friends, I have window 7 64 bit Home Premium installed on my lat top, little more info it is toshiba core i3.

I wanna use window xp 32 bit on same machine, but As I have registered window 7 i don't wanna uninstall it.

I am in need to use window xp 32 bit along with window 7 64 bit at the same time so dual mode will not be useful for me.

Can I install 32 on usb and can use it
Or can I install window xp on any virtual machine which could be used along with W7 simultaneously.
Or any other idea please share it with me.

I would go with installing XP in a virtual machine. I have VirtualBox on all of my systems and one of my VMs is always a 32-bit XP. Another is some flavor of Linux. Just make sure you have at least 4GB of RAM.

The solution to the problem was installtion of Virtual Machine and then installing Required OS on that V machine.

I have gotten V Machine, and problem has been resolved.

Thanks for participating.

Best Regards
