Vista Vista Dual Boot

Will EasyBCD allow you to boot vista with two different configurations on a 160Gb hard drive laptop? One boot would be as standard with all Vista bells and wistles the other boot would allow you to boot into a trimmed down vista that would have all the intensive windows graphics and unwanted start up programs discontinued. If you can do this would you need to purhcase a complete new copy of vista for rthis second boot or would the manufacturers vista recovery disk be sufficient?

Hi Tom,

Welcome to NeoSmart Technologies. EasyBCD does indeed let you dual-boot another copy of the same version of Vista.

You may install as many copies of Vista on the same machine as you like without violating your license.
