Is it possible to build a multi-boot system on a single drive with XP + Vista + 7 or the same one with 64bit editions included ? Because I have a few additional parts lying around + original Windows CDs ready to exploit and would be a shame not to use them 😉 Would it be possible to build a 6-Windows system? Or rather try this with separate HDDs or better yet using IDE to SD converter & try it with swapping cards? What are your thoughts on this matter? Any help & advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

I mean... you could use an IDE to SD card adapter. But the performance and longevity is very questionable.

Same with installing multiple versions of Windows on the same drive. You should keep things tidy and install them on separate drives. The partition map for 3 Windows installs (plus the additional recovery and boot partitions they create) would be a nightmare to look at.
