For example :
(With a multiboot system)
Hard drive 1 :
C : XP 1
D : XP 2
E : GS3 installation files
Hard drive 2
F : Samples
I presume that we have to install GS3 again on the XP 2 OS of course, but the questions are :
1) Does the install process of GS detect the GS program in the « E : / Program file » path (already installed) and then doesn't rewrite it again ?
2) If so, do we have to reactivate GS3 ?
The advantages could be :
1 ) Only 1 activation.
2 ) Keeping all GS3 parameters. (windows, path, options...)
3 ) Fast restoration of XP (1’40 in my case) instead of using the XP tool to defrag the OS.
4 ) To tweak XP for better performances and other tests on the second OS.
5 ) Possibly better performances if we put the software drive (E : ) on another hard drive ?
And without multi boot system (only one OS drive) : to do not have to reactivate GS3 after a new XP installation.
It could be interesting...
Any thought ?
