    I have been successfully dual booting with XP and Window 7 Ultimate 64bit. Is this the same process if I want to add Windows 8 to this list?

    I have a dualboot configuration with windows 7 and ubuntu 10.04. Now I want to install windows 8 in addition to windows 7 and ubuntu on the same hd. I've updated easyBCD to version 2.2 and have an empty partition I want to use for windows 8. Do I have to uninstall easyBCD before I install it on windows 8? Or can I leave the easyBCD installation on windows 7? When I uninstall windows 8 then I have to install easyBCD again on windows 7, right?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can have it installed wherever you like.
    It's also portable, so you can execute the copy on W7 with a shortcut from W8 if you prefer.

    great, thank you very much. I'll post my results as soon as possibel.

    Addendum

    Thank you very much, you get the first message from my Windows 8 Installation, triple-boot with easyBCD works. Thank you very much. And now I believe I need some time to learn Windows 8. The new Desktop formerly known as Metro? Why not Halloween?
