    Backing up a multiboot system

    cheers for that Terry, I'll try that out. I have always found system restore to be very handy in the past so that's a cool idea. p.s. your sig has gotten me hungry. Can't believe how many times recently Sains and Tesco have been out of clotted cream for our scones. :@

    Backing up a multiboot system

    Thanks Justin, never even thought of it like that. Guess what I was doing was overkill. Vista is a relatively mature install, with not much being added to it any more. Win 7 is a much newer install. I am still installing software as I need it, can't face spending a day installing...

    Backing up a multiboot system

    Hmmm complicated, well maybe I'll play safe. Just keep backing up to my external drive and wait till I have to reinstall an OS next. Hopefully with a new build early next year. Still if any of you guys ever develop some software (add to wish list)/ hardware that can do what I was thinking...

    Backing up a multiboot system

    Thanks guys for your input and help :happy: What I guess I was/ am looking for was a way to back up all the OS's and data on my pc and maybe the wife's laptop too. I have one drive which contains my three OS's (the OS drive) and the other that contains data. The data is accessible to...

    Backing up a multiboot system

    This has probably been asked before but I can't for the life of me see it here or even on google. Currently I run Vista 32bit, Win 7 64bit and Ubuntu 64bit. Each of them I can back up whilst in that OS. (Vista doesn't see Win 7, but Win 7 lets me back itself and Vista up). The problem is...

    Ubuntu after Win 7 after Vista

    Well that went surprisingly smoothly. Now I'm off to re-install all my software, which must really be one of the most boring things ever. Just sit there watching a progress bar. :( so thanks guys for your help. I've even ventured in to Ubuntu too. Looks nice and very responsive too. A...

    Ubuntu after Win 7 after Vista

    thanks for that I was expecting the slash dev slash bit to be included and then the sd went and became a hd and .... Right I'm off now to start this all off. Wish me luck. :)

    Ubuntu after Win 7 after Vista

    Cheers for that. If I don't ever post back you know I'm really stuck :lol: Do you think 100gig is enough for Ubuntu?

    Ubuntu after Win 7 after Vista

    Hi guys, It's me again, back for help from the guys who know all things boot. :) Previously you all sorted out my system and I ended up triple booting with the best of them, running XP, Vista and Win 7. Unfortunately Vista has had an update go awry and M$ have recommended a re-install. I am...

    The Introduction Thread

    Well after sorting my problems I have eventually found this thread. (So yup, my first post was a plea for help). I came across EasyBCD a while ago. It was mentioned in an article in a pc mag I was reading. My main reason for installing it was due to XP and the restore points as I was just...

    Removing an OS.

    Thanks again Terry. I'll try the installation on to a 2nd hard drive. I really like that way of removing the OS. Simple enough for me to follow :) This EasyBCD really is excellent. Ok guys. Terry, Coolname007 Computer Guru and kairozamorro. Thank you for the help and patience shown to a...

    Removing an OS.

    Thanks for all that Terry. Glad to hear that about W7, think I'm going to try W7 out over the weekend then. Just to see what the future might be like. If I decide to remove W7 later would I have to go thru all this again? You say you had to add an entry to the Vista BCD with EasyBCD. Terry...

    Removing an OS.

    Well now I'm confused. Oh, ok I was confused a long time ago but I'm more so now. The situation as was. I was to be able to boot to each of the OSes from dive A. But if I boot in to Fresh Vista then when I reboot I have to run the vista dvd and startup repair in order to access Vista...
