...Install Windows XP on Your Pre-Installed Windows Vista Computer
"The question I am asked most often is "How do I install a dual-boot
with Windows XP on my new Windows Vista computer?" The answer is that
it's not that difficult, it's just very time consuming, and you need
to own a copy of Windows XP.
The first issue we encounter is that computers with pre-installed
operating systems take up the entire drive. Luckily Microsoft included
the Shrink volume feature in Vista, so we can easily shrink the Vista
partition down to make room for XP."...

If i uninstall sp1 for windows 7 then they re appear.
I have not been able to find any leads on this issue. Has anyone
experienced this issue?
can you explain what you mean by "disappear"? Do you mean no longer
show in the list of unpatched vulnerabilities? If so, that's what I
would expect to happen, since SP1 contains the prior updates.

This short article is intended to clear up confusion about how to disable
Windows File Protection. I've seen errant information posted in many places
and felt it necessary to sum up the truth of the matter.
When Windows File Protection was first introduced in Windows 2000 I found it
bothersome. After doing some research on how to disable it I was surprised
to learn that Microsoft only provided a mechanism to do so when a kernel
debugger is active by setting the SFCDisable registry value to 1 or 2 . The
MSDN article describing this is here:

What is the System Update Readiness Tool?
System resources, such as file data, registry data, and even in-memory data,
can develop inconsistencies during the lifetime of the operating system.
These inconsistencies might be caused by various hardware failures or might
be caused by software issues. In some cases, these inconsistencies can
affect the Windows servicing store, and they can cause software updates not
to work. The System Update Readiness Tool tries to resolve these

While developers at Microsoft Corp. may be celebrating that they finished
work on Service Pack 2 (SP2) for Windows XP, IT departments around the world
now face the question of whether they should update their systems, or not.
IBM Corp., for one, is holding off on installing the security focused update
for Windows XP. In a note headlined "To patch -- or not to patch" posted
Friday on its corporate intranet, IBM tells its employees not to download
SP2 when it becomes available because of compatibility issues. A copy of the
note was obtained by IDG News Service.
