My main operating system of choice is windows 2000. I know it, I love it, I don’t want to switch just for the few pieces of software that can’t be tinkered into working. Normally software that says “winXP or Vista only” only take a few .dll or config file changes to work. Fallout 3, however, is giving me a bit of trouble. I hear great things about this game, however I can’t seem to get it to run correctly on win2k.
I really don’t want to switch my operating system. Ideally, I’d like to be able to boot into winXP when I want to play this game, and other than those times still use win2k. How do I go about doing this? How much of a hassle is this going to be? Am I better off digging out another hard drive and just putting winXP on that, loading the drivers, and swapping IDE cables whenever I want to play winXP games?
I was A+ certified back in the year 2001 when in high school, so I’m comfortable working with this type of thing but my computer knowledge is a bit dated.
