I wish to dual boot Windows XP and Windows 7.
I wish to have my documents available from both OSes.
Do I create a single partition and it just works?
2 partitions, one for each OS?
3 partitions, one for each OS and one for the "my documents"?
I used 3 partitions, one for each partition and one for docs which is mapped as a separate drive. Works perfectly. The only think you need to do is hide the other OS partition, ie for Windows XP, hide the Windows 7 partition. You do this from partition manager.
