    I have located some IDE power cables with switches in the cable.
    Yell out if anyone is interested.
    PS if you have Sata drives, you can get IDE to Sata extension(convert) cables ($3), and have the switched IDE power cable as the power source.

    @Rob (Down Under):

    I had simlar problems dual booting Xp and Win7, I wanted to keep the documents and stuff common, but somehow Xp screwed up the Win7 files (or vice-versa) and deleted things it thought weren’t native to it’s OS.
    For a while I just used a removable hard drive carrier and swapped the XP or Win7 hard disks as and when needed.
    Now I just keep 2 PC’s and use a KVM…….

  • Rob (Down Under)

    Anyone know of a switch ?
    Because of unwanted interactions of OS’s when dual booting, I have resigned myself to having two drives in my PCs, and I keep the data cables permanently plugged in.
    However I only have one power cable connected at any time.
    So if I want drive A, then I unplug the power cable from drive B.
    And I do the opposite if I want drive B to run.
    Does anyone know of a switch that can be installed in one of the power cables, which has two outlets. Those two outlets can be run to drives A and B, and can remain permanently connected to both drives.
    From that day on, all I have to do, is toggle the switch, to select either drive.
    You don’t have to provide me with a direct link to a seller, all I need is the correct terminology to Google for.

  • Rob (Down Under)

    Are you sure that it is the motherboard ?
    Windows has a habit of ‘mothering’ multiple OS’s
    You may find that it is the Boot.ini in one of your OS’s that is offering those two choices to you ?
    If you are correct (that it is the motherboard), could you elaborate on that for me.
    My PC’s are 2004 or older, however I have a friend interstate that has a new PC tower.
    It is a 64 bit running Win 7 Pro.
    If he ever has problems with programs, it would be great if I could advise him (over the phone) how to pop in another drive, into which we could put XP or Win7 32 bit.
    I have been hesitant to suggest this, but if his motherboard can do what you described, I would be happy to suggest he do that (2nd drive with 32 bit OS).

    dang it, just missed :(

    Downloaded, installed (Win 7/64) and disc burnt. Looks like a very useful disc to have if disaster (or finger trouble) strikes. Hope no one has to use it! Well found Bob!

    Installed on both Vista-32 bit and Win7-32 bit and booted up fine using Imgburn.
    Very nice and clean interface !
    Thankyou dottech.

    Very good program but I will continue to use Acronis True image for dire problems like viruses and such.

  • Warskull

    Hi I was using my own email rather than the one that came with the code from the wondershare email

  • dcomay

    @ Warskull: same thng happened to me. how did you “get it going”?

  • Al Bundy

    No need to use the built-in imgburn. After the install there is the iso file in the installation directory, you can burn it with your favorite program.

  • Warskull

    Got it going

  • Warskull

    Tried four times and keeps saying wrong email or serial #, copy and paste and manual entering still the same msg

  • turn off your antivirus I did! suddenly I was able to download it in about 10 – 15 minutes

  • faulkn_c

    I downloaded it first thing this morning and the download speed was then OK.
    Installed no problems and burnt a boot CD – only problem was ImgBurn crashed after CD verify – but it worked anyway.
    Very useful tools, never tried a WinPE disc before, so thanks WonderShare – a great giveaway….
    But where do you enter your license details?

  • Merlin

    I am not sure I understand what it brings that Hiren’sBoot CD does not for free. Or what you can achieve with your windows 7 CD or any stuff that Acronis or paragon provides ?

    There are zillions of these things and rather than just unloading them on unsuspected reader a bit of comment and comparison would be welcome.

    @Fatma Batim: I use 2 ways of running old XP-only programs. At work I run Ubuntu 10.10 and on our network there’s an XP server which I log into using Terminal Sever Client and run anything I want from my desk. At home all our machines dual boot the Windows they came with, and some flavor of Linux, mostly Ubuntu variants. Using the Wine program, I can install and run most XP -only programs. It also runs most Windows 7 programs, although I always try native Linux ones first. (One I couldn’t fully install was WordPerfect2000, the installer was wierd. )

    The download is slow. This giveaway has been mentioned on several sites. Wondershare’s downloader allows you to restart the process (which I had to do). I was eventually successful. I’m comparing this product to another (commercial) app and there’s no comparison–Wondershare’s is best (for my needs) thus far.

  • Jeffinprov

    What a s-l-o-w download…

  • Dan

    Please help, somebody. I have been trying to download the installation files from their website for over 3 hours now with the Live Boot downloader keep crashing. I know the site must be busy, but not so busy as to not respond continually.

  • greg bern

    use there email in blank that u get in there lic email. giveaway@wondershare.com
    otherwise want register. then install run and make your cd to boot from

  • Doug

    I too have windows 7 installed with Xp also. I do not use the duel boot feature. I have a second hard drive installed with Windows XP installed on that drive. During the boot process my motherboard gives me the option to boot from ether HD. So if I want XP I just Boot from my XP drive. If I want 7 then I chose the Windows 7 drive. Check to see if your motherboard has this feature. Most new motherboards do.

  • Fatma Batim

    My problem is that I bought a new windows 7 64-bit computer that will not allow me to dual-boot windows XP. I need XP to run some programs that I have confirmed that windows 7 is unable to run (I have been through the windows 7 compatability rigmarole already and do not want to fork out for a more expensive version of windows 7 to utilise XP virtualisation).
    I have my new computer’s SATA drivers, which I know that XP doesn’t have, on a USB flash drive.
    I want to use “Wondershare LiveBoot 2012” to make an installation of XP on a hard drive from my old computer bootable on my new computer.
    Any hints would be much appreciated.
