    multiple booting

    Is there an idiots guide to mutlibooting? I would like to boot Windows 7 / Windows 8 / Ubuntu Studio and another Windows 7. I figured there would be a guide for booting four OS's, but I only see dual booting.

    multi boot off single partition

    Until your post, I had no idea what a VHD was! I've learned a few things now about VHD's. It looks simple enough... the link provided makes it appear easy to do. Can I still manage the booting OS with Easy BCD? And is there any reason to limit the size to 16 gb? I am going to experiment...

    multi boot off single partition

    I am familiar with dual booting in the "classic" way. Make another partition, use a BCD editor (Easy BCD) install other OS and choose which I want at boot up. What I want to know is if I can dual boot without creating another partition and keeping the drive letters the same. Is this possible?

    All very good suggestions. Looking at the computer, it is simple to copy all her photographs over. The problem is retrieving her passwords for all her web sites that she has no idea what they are and then getting them into W7. She has almost no other software on there that she uses - most of...

    Simple question about dual booting Vista and 7

    I had Acronis Disk Director resize the partitions so they were about equal. It locked both partitions and started doing its thing. It is slow going and I peeked at it every once in a while. I figure it would have taken about 90 minutes as I watched the percentages go. I came back a while...

    Simple question about dual booting Vista and 7

    I see... it leaves me right now with a 25gb C drive when I boot off the 7 OS. I have about 25 more gb free, but I can not add them to the partition with 7 installed, only the Vista partition...so you see why I am concerned about removing the Vista partition in June. If I delete the Vista...

    Simple question about dual booting Vista and 7

    But what about the other stuff on the Vista partition once I delete it? Will that be gone as well? I am concerned about the photo's here. If I recall correctly, when I did this with EasyBCD about a year ago, I did not loose a thing when I deleted the partition. (XP/Vista dual boot). Its no...
