Hi, I need to install a DOS partition in my WinXP HDD. I've heard that it's
only possible to install DOS first and then WinXP. Is there any way to
install a DOS partition after the XP ?

Thanks in advance

Maybe, using third party boot loader software, such as
Partition Magic.

Or use Virtual PC, to run DOS in Windows.

IIRC, Partition Magic does NOT provide boot loading capability; it is
only a program that allows manipulating partitions.

Of course, I haven't used it in a long while. Has it been updated to
allow boot loading?

I see PQBoot in the tools menu of PM8

But if that doesn't do it, there are other programs.
