    I have Win 10 installed on a 2tb SSD, separated into two partitions.
    I would like to install XP 32 sp3 on the 2nd partition. Simply to be able to continue using some favourite and otherwise redundant hardware! I currently have XP installed on a laptop. But would like to have both systems running on the main beast, if this is possible. Some words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated!

    All my desktops have removable drive trays. I have seperate drives with ubuntu, XP 32 Xp 64, &tc, &tc. I experiment on diff drives so as not to screw up this one right now.

    Kingwin makes a 'trayless' drive bay, just swap bare drives, "power off, of course"

    I bought a dozen of these a few years ago, (SNT Mobile Rack), no one sells 'em any more, there are similar ones tho,=

    Yes. Thank you. That was my latest train of thought. A completely separate HDD or SDD. OK. Next stop! eBay.
