Only MacWorks XL 3.0 can co-exist with Lisa OS. THe other MacWorks version cannot.
The Lisa OS install procedure ask if you want to share the disk with Mac OS and it create his boot loader. With 2 partition installed the bootable one is always the Lisa Os. To start tha Mac OS the MacWorks XL 3.0 boot floppy is necessary.
If you install ONLY Mac OS using MacWorks XL 3.0, at the end of the "Hard Disk Install" procedure it ask to insert the MacWorks XL 3.0 Boot Disk and it copy his boot loader and files. When MacWorks is shared the procedure do not ask for that Boot disk.
