    I want to add XP Pro to my Win 7 machine so I can play old games that will not play on W7.

    What is the best solution for this?

    Move my current HDD to the Win7 PC?
    Add a SSD and install XP? I have a SSD that is sitting around.

    Don't have any idea which is better, if at all?

    Anyone have ony thoughts on this?

    Thanks in advance,
    Jeff

    On a hardware side, put W7 on SSD, it has the software to deal with it. Put XP on the HDD,
