    Yes - you can - if you set up both of them carefully.

    • you can either set up a dual boot environment, meaning you will have to choose on boot which operating system you want to run...i'd install windows xp first and windows 2003 server as second os...

      here you will find some links that deal with dual boot options: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,1634079;root=winme;mode=flat

      another choice would be to install one of the two os running within a virtual environment (such as vmware), which would mean that you boot the host operatiung system (for example win xp) and start the other os within the virtual machine...both operting systems would run in parallel making your architecture more flexible...

    yes, as long as you use Windows 2003 for IDES.

    Hi,

    first of all you should have enough space in your hard disk to accomodate 2OS as well as SAP

    and if you have the required space then

    -->install Xp first in one partition may be C:

    --->then install windows2003 server in another drive may be D:

    -->use your other partition for SAP insallation in windows2003 environment.

    Install SAP (may be E:)

    boot from the OS you want by just selecting it at the time of starting your system

    Regards

    Hi there,

    Yes you can install two OS and install IDES in Windows 2003 as well.

    You can also have option of Virtual OS if you want.

    I hope it helps

    Cheers
