    That's only in case XP supports your HW at all. If it doesn't support it (and judging by no availability of drivers) it 99.99% it doesn't, no matter if it's in dual boot or not.
    Heck, even W7 (SP1) is doubtful and needs some work to install, let alone XP.
    Edit.
    Is this PRIME A320M-K | Motherboards | ASUS Global your MB ? I don't see Firewire connector at all, do you have an ad on card ?

    yes, it is.

    we have a card, this one: DIGITUS: DIGITUS - Produkte

    please see this: How to get older drivers to work in Windows 10

    what are our options now..

    we need windows xp for the camera, or how to make drivers to work for the camera in win 10 ?

    thanks

    First you have to see if XP can be installed at all and than worry about drivers for that card. If you don't have another disk you could just make full system backup and try to install XP, if it doesn't work you can always restore W10 to same disk but that would also involve getting another HDD of even higher capacity. Small (120GB) SSDs are. very cheap nowadays and small HDDs practically non existent.

    I need windows xp only for firewire camera
    Do you have a Firewire port on this computer? If not, you can't install it anyways until you have a FW port. If so, have you tried your camera on Windows 10? What is the make and model # of the camera?
    If the camera uses an XP driver, install it in Compatibility Mode on Windows 10

    He has an older addon card with no drivers for anything but XP. Otherwise W10 has drivers for firewire, works on my older machine with it on board.
    Could always get a card like this one 2 Port PCI Express 1394a FireWire Card | FireWire Cards | StarTech.com which is plug and play.

    Installing XP bare metal on a RYZEN isn't possible. VMs don't appear to have Firewire support. The only option is to keep the old PC. If the Win 10 is Pro or better with SMB1 enabled and I think the XP would need to be Pro as well ? It may or may not be possible to access the camera using a shared folder ??

    no, you misunderstood, it's not a firewire card issu... as i wrote that before

    this is the card: DIGITUS: DIGITUS - Produkte

    Supports Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and XP

    Supports hot-swapping and Plug & play connections

    it's problem with camera driver which only works in windows xp, and I am trying to install camera driver on win 10 education.

    or at least install dual boot.

    You said Firewire so I assumed it's the problem because for camera it doesn't matter how it is connected. If it's not universal. plug and play than it does need specific driver.
