Hi
Welcome to the forums
As of my knowledge, windows 8 pre-instslled of gpt partitions and windows xp does not install on gpt disks. Dual booting windows xp on windows 8 is a process of hassles.

Thank you for response.

I convert the hdd to MBR and i will use just Windows xp Pro.

Should i install XP Pro 32bit or 64bit ?

I need to use XP Pro, because many tools what i use are not supported at the moment windows 8 ?

Hi
Win xp 64 bit would be better so install it.

Hi
I cannot answer this. The best is to ask microsoft for that. But most probably it wont be possible since no one can assure that you wont use win 8. So no.
