Laptop coming preloaded with Vista...Suggestions?


New Member
I have a nice shiny laptop on the way, preloaded with Vista. I plan on partitioning and keeping the Vista install intact, and then creating/installing XP, OSX86, and Maybe Ubuntu. Is it possible to install these and not have to reinstall Vista? Will your boot manager work for this?

Sweet! I was hoping that would be all I have to do. I already have gparted. Prolly will just use that. Thanks!

Hey ilikenwf, welcome to NST!

Yeah, toxic's advice is right on the mark, and EasyBCD will work great almost whatever your setup. Let us know if there's a hitch anywhere along the way or if you need any advice or tips on anything...

Good luck!
