dual-booting problem

Even when your Win XP/Vista machine is happily dual-booting, one problem remains. As you work in Vista, the System Restore utility automatically creates restore points.... But when you exit Vista and launch Win XP deletes the Vista restore points...
does anyone know a workaround for this...

Don't use System Restore in either Vista or XP? :whistling:

Alternatively, tell each version of Windows not to monitor the other drive for changes.

Makes no difference.

Right-click My Computer -> Properties -> System Restore -> Select Vista partition -> Settings -> tick the box -> OK.

Do the same in Vista, only this time select the XP partition.
