    Vista & XP Dual Boot, with Domain on each OS??

    Not possible I've found, but is there any way round this?

    I'm running a dual boot with XP as primary OS and Vista there for testing etc...

    I installed XP, then Vista.

    Added XP to the domain, logged in etc...
    Then added Vista to the domain, logged in...

    Tried to go back to XP and it said it couldn't find the domain. Tested Vista all fine. Logged back into XP as local admin, added XP to the domain again. Logged in fine.

    Tried Vista, no domain 'setup'

    Big time rubbish. Any work around?

    You are using different hostnames for each OS, right? If you add a machine and then add a different machine (which is how the domain sees the new OS, unless I'm mistaken) with the same hostname it associates the hostname with the new machine.
