choosable active partitions with Vista

Hello, dear Windows fan,
on my old Notebook I had 2 choosable active partitions Windows-XP prof.
If any software went wrong, I could switch-off and start again with the
other partition. I could repair from there some faults, if the self-repair
could not help.
In any way I could use the 2. partition to search for help in the internet.
Now I have a new Notebook , It came without any CD. Vista premium SPK 1
was pre-installed. It has 2 additional logical partitions on the hardisk.
I had to buy Partition-Manager 9 to "enable" another active partition.
But I was not lucky. Must I format the next patition - then how to start it ?
Even with my Windows-XP prof. SPK2 CD, I was not lucky to achieve this.
With an additional active partition with Windows-XP, I would be able to play
my old games and to use a Multifunction Printer. For my Lexmark P6250,
I cannot find drivers for Vista to install its scanner.
I did transfer 1 old partition on an external harddisk.
So I could copy all of it on a logical partition of my new Notebook - but I
cannot
install a second choosable active partition to make use of the copy on a
second active partition. How to solve the partition problem ?
If there is no way, then how to get drivers for the included scanner ?
Or, must I buy a new multifunction printer - with scanner ?
It seems that the new Vista premium was not yet the best choice for me ?
Or might there be some hopeful way ? A good answer would be a good deed.
kind regards,

Hallo Detlef,
