Default Should I order 10V with XP or W7 Starter to dual boot? - 12-03-2009, 03:51 PM

Hi I'm new on here.

After reading around a bit, I ordered a Mini 10V a couple days ago with the Win XP option. While Win 7 Starter is only $20 more I felt it would still be a wasted $20 as I plan to primarily run Snow Leopard. However, I would like to occasionnally boot into Windows to maybe run some old Win games, etc. I'd read elsewhere Win 7 starter was a limited OS and besides XP would be fine for these occasional use purposes. However, now that I've read more thoroughly the dual boot guides here, they all relate to Win 7. There seems to be some problem with Win XP dual boot??

Should I call back to Dell and change order to Win 7 starter? It hasn't got ready to ship yet.

Just stick to XP if it won't be used much.
