I have read online that dual booting Windows XP 32bit and Windows 8.1 64bit is possible. Is it? If so, how? I am planning on buying a new laptop this Summer and I want to dual boot WinXP 32bit to Win8.1 64bit since a lot of the programs and games I like to use don't run as well on Windows 8.1. I'm familiar with the roots of XP (I've used it for more than 10 years now, along with Vista and 7 for about 4 years), but I'm not that familiar with the roots of 8.1.
