  1. Hello everybody. I am (i think) the newest member of this fantastic community and the fantastic website. I have a problem and are hoping you can solve it! You see, is there any way to partition win 95 onto a hard drive which allready contains win xp? If there is then please tell me because i want my desktop pc to have win xp and win 95 so that way I can play with my educational software and gamez. Thankyou for your time and the contribution that I hope you will put to answer this. I'm very grateful!

    Before you think about installing 95,take a look at -

    - Windows compatibility mode HERE

    - Virtual machine HERE

    If you still want to install 95,you will have to remove XP,

    install 95,then resize the 95 partition,install XP

    and dual boot.

    I have some interactive educational Cds which I paid quite a lot for and they are only compatible with win 95.

    I still think setting up a virtual machine wil be much much easier and quicker than trying to do a dual boot.
