So I´m about to do a dual boot. So now i´m curious will this give me the opportunity to play games that are compatible with XP or will the games still recognize that i´m on a Win 7 system and stop working?

PS. I know what i´m doing!

...There aren't any games that you need XP for that you can't run on 7.

Universezero I keep telling my broken CD of C&C Generals Zero Hour exactly that thing. Its pretty sick to actually hear your machine tearing apart a CD!
