Duplicate Windows 7 on the HDD; add Win7-PE, Win XP or Win 8;

 

Hey, nice post (that had been promoted to article, congrats! :))

.. my only issue is this. There are *far* simpler ways.

 

=)

P.S.
Just to be clear, I meant: using something like the Oracle VM VirtualBox and/or the VMware Player to launch and maintain multiple Operating Systems.

Hi, 

 

Virtual machine is of course the best option to run Microsoft and Linux together. You must mind nevertheless that the amount of memory needed for the guest OS will be taken away from the host machine and presented to the guest operating system as virtual computer's installed RAM. Since this moment the memory you give to the VM will not be available to your host OS while the VM is running. The VM may not even be able to start if that memory is not available. 

 

If you only run different Microsoft OS types you have the possibility of using the whole memory at any of them by installing each one at a different drive unit, choosing at boot the one you want from a boot list. As an added advantage you are able to modify anything or to install permanently any new application or update at each one of them.

Ofc., thanks for the reply!.. RAM hasn't been an issue for so long, that I'd almost forgotten about it! xD

.. Back-in-the-day, used to struggle with one, or two GB of (SD) RAM; ah, those were the days. :)
