Actually, there is a way you can have your cake and eat it too without installing Windows completely twice (although a duel install XP/XP is quite possible, any NT based OS should have no problems doing it). What you can do is go into the âhardwareâ tab of your system properties (where Device Manager sits), and click the âHardware Profilesâ button. Make a copy of your current config and name the copy something else, like âRecording config.â Reboot and you will get a menu that will allow you to select Hardware profiles. Select the ârecording configâ and let Windows boot. Uninstall the normal sound drivers and install the recording optimized ones on this config. You should be able to switch over to the âGaming configâ and those drivers will automatically load up, while ârecording configâ will load with the drivers you installed. Give it a shot! If it doesnât work, I suppose you should duel install Windows XP (it is doable, so long as you know what you are doing).Well the reasoning behind my need for two XPs is that I want a system setup with some specific sound drivers so that I can experiment with some recording software. These drivers have some limitations (in terms of gameing), but also some advantages (in terms of rcording) and it would be a hassle to constantly switch between the regular SBLive drivers and these using System Restore and Ghost.
That's always the trouble, isn't it?Originally posted by Curtis+Apr 1, 2003 @ 11:12 PM--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE(Curtis @ Apr 1, 2003 @ 11:12 PM)</div><div class='quotemain'> <!--QuoteBegin-TheXev@Apr 2, 2003 @ 10:09 PM
