I don't see any reason for having XP and 7, but if you wish to have it that way just do it.

hi,
i dont know why do u want three OS?!!!! but you'd better use virtual machine (virtual Box , Vmware ,..)
u can have win7 as main os and win xp or other operating systems on VM

I recommend you to install both windows first, and finally the linux.

Thanks,
I found out the sequence, XP -> 7 -> Ubuntu

Yes i am aware of Vmware and Virtual Box, but i do works which requires to use full power of my system which i cant be able on virtual machines.
I want linux and windows environment so i must have to keep both, but windows 7 already use average 10% of cpu and 1.3 gb of ram because i have some important applications on it. So i thought of XP.

Thanks all.
