ANSWER: You can't keep System Restore points if you dual-boot with an earlier operating system. XP will delete the Restore Points when it reboots, since the Windows 7 disk structure is incompatible with the way XP reads the hard drive. A workaround is available, but this can create its own problems.
If you want to continue running Windows XP on your computer, you'd be better off doing so in the free Virtual XP mode. Click here to download Windows XP Mode.
