    Sounds like Fujitsu Siemens, it means either they come preloaded with Vista Business and have recovery media for XP Pro or include recovery media for both XP Pro and Vista Business.

    Yes it does sound like it comes with Windows XP and Vista. OEMs clearly still see a market for Windows XP, so some offer both in the same package.

    We had a twin load fujitsu for the school office, slightly confused at first thought it may be dual boot, but it comes with vista preinstalled and a disk for xp, the xp installation is rapid, takes about 15 mins, all drivers loaded -up and running with xp very quickly.

    Thumbs up

    Thanks for clearing up this twinload business. I was pricing up for a client and was wondering what it meant.

    Cheers.

    Ah! this is not what I thought twin load meant! I thought it meant that you could switch between them "live". That's what the Fujitsu site seems to be saying. Am I wrong and that you have to decide which one to use and then that's it?

    You can use either Vista Business or XP Pro, but not both at the same time this would require a licence for each.

    Definitely not dual boot/live switching. It's one or the other, but you have both lots of media so if you have an hour spare and don't mind wiping everything you can switch over over a lunchtime?
