Hi guys,
I was wondering if I can install a second operating system onto my computer which currently runs windows 7. The operating system that I want to install is Windows 2000 SP4. My computer has 4 gbs of ram on it and I was wondering can you install windows 2000 onto this kind of computer. My computers hard drive has about 930 gigabites as well.

Thanks.

Just for the record (info omitted in the OP) the machine is a HP p6714y, more details on the hardware are on this earlier thread:

It's possible but it'll be difficult to find all the appropriate drivers. I doubt you'll even find XP drivers for it on their site so you might have to do a little digging online to find appropriate drivers. There are a good chance that you might find some XP drivers that will work with it but things like wireless network drivers are picky about it. You might be able to use the /PAE extension for being able to use all 4 gigs of RAM but not if you use an Intel Graphics adapter on the motherboard. Why not list all the devices in your system and we can go from there?
