  1. Hello,

    I am about to buy an SSD(OCZ Vertex II 60GB). I want to install Win 7 on the SSD, XP Home and Pro on separate partitions on the SATA drive I have now. Will it be necessary to use a third party boot loader, or will the Windows boot loader recognize all three OS's?

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    It will, just be sure Windows 7 is installed last. It doesn't matter what order the XP installations are in. Just make sure 7 is installed last!
