Preperation for Booting

---Back up all data before beginning---

1. Usb HP Usb Disk Utility to format your drive to be bootable *make sure it is NTFS*:
(Download links are no longer available; please use the Google search engine to find a copy of the Free HP USB Disk Utility
*External Hard Drives are naturally bootable, so if you have one there is no need for this step*

2. Make 2 Partitions: At minimum 5gb for xp and 11gb+ for windows 7
----It is recommended to make at least 20GB for Windows XP and the rest (at least 40GB) for windows 7

3. Find and Download VMWare 6.5x
---Once again, you must use the google search engine. It MUST be a copy of VMWare 6.5x (for example, 6.51 will work)

4. Download MagicISO Maker (full version required) or any other .iso injector

5. Make sure you have alot of time on your hands, this process is lengthy
