Hi Ashutosh! Welcome to AOA.

These are two very different things.

Dual booting refers to having more than one Operating system. Many dual boot between XP and Vista, others use XP and get the idea, any machine that boots to more than one OS, though of course only one at a time! ":O}

Dual processing refers to having a CPU with more than one Core. Anyone running a dual core CPU is by definition dual processing.

I hope this helps you?
