Is it possible to divide my hard drive into two partitions and run Windows XP in one and Windows 10 in the other?

IF your drive already has 4 partitions, and it is partitioned using MBR, then no -- you can not add any more partitions.


If you have less than 4 partitions, you can add another Primary partition for installing Windows XP -- but if yours is a recent model PC that came with Win10, you probably won't be able to find any HP Windows XP drivers for it.
