    Maybe Windows 8? I belive it does support ARMs but I dont think it will support regular Windows software

    If you want to run Win XP, Vista or 7 on any of the ARM based platforms you can forget it.

    If you mean dual boot XP and 7 on a Wintel machine you need to download EasyBCD from NeoSmart. Either v2.1.2 for $25 or the previous version as freeware.

    Download EasyBCD 2.1.2 - NeoSmart Technologies

    I ran ver 2.0.2 for a while before switching entirely to Win 7 on my Intel dual core HP laptop.

    Be careful which order you install your OS and don't kill the bootloader...
