You'll need to purchase a "bootloader" which will allow you to dual boot. Another Answer: Many versions of Linux come with a boot loader, but Microsoft products don't play well with others, especially Vista. It CAN be done, it's just a difficult process. You may want to contact your local Linux …Users Group. Yet Another Answer: And it really depends on WHAT Microsoft operating system you are trying to dual boot is. What I have found is ensuring windows is loaded, and running properly THEN install ubuntu, and let the GRUB loader do the work. It will find the best way to change the Master Boot Record so everything works as it should. I would be careful, and back up ANYTHING you have on your windows installation (folders, my documents, etc) just in case. (MORE)
Before you format xp you will need to go onto Linux and create a grub boot disk by typing grub-install /dev/fd0. This will create a floppy disk which you can use to start Linux after you have removed and reinstalled xp. After removing and reinstalling xp use the disk to get back onto Linux and use g…rub-install /dev/hda to restore the Linux boot screen. (MORE)
the loader of practically all computers EXCEPT MAC is dos. for mac it is lunix(unix)
install vista first. then install Linux Linux will install a bootloader called grub, which can handle windows vista as well.
First of all...why? Second of all...I suppose you can just boot the Windoze CD and follow the instructions to reformat the drive. But make sure to make a backup of your important info first.
It is known as a dual-boot. Install Windows first, then installwhichever distribution of Linux you what to use second. You aregiven the choice of which to use at the start of booting up.
Some people do not like having a separate /home partition for Linux, though it is better for recovery purposes. For the purposes of the question, it is assumed that you do not want a separate partition for your /home directory. The best performance is provided by placing a Linux swap partition fi…rst on the drive. This should be at least double the amount of RAM you have installed, but no larger than 1 GB. You will have to move the XP partition to the end of the drive after you have installed it. The partition after the swap partition should be a Linux partition. I personally prefer ReiserFS, but ext3 is slightly more popular, mostly due to the larger number of error recovery tools. The last partition should be the Windows XP partition. (MORE)
To install a Windows program, you will need to have Wine installed. You can install this through Synaptic, or through the command line with the command sudo apt-get install wine After Wine is installed, you can run the installer by either right-click the program and selecting "Open with", and …choosing Wine, or from the command line with the command wine setup.exe The setup program should launch and run; just follow the instructions as you would in Windows. To run the actual program, either find the program in your applications menu (probably under either "Wine" or "Lost and Found"), or navigate to the program's installation directory inside your home directory (ex. /home/user/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/WinRar ) and launch it with the command wine program.exe there is a program you can download on Linux called "wine" that program allows you to choose programs on windows which can be compatible with Linux here is the link http://www.reallylinux.com/docs/toptip4.shtml (MORE)
Like all dual-booting processes, you must have ample space in yourhard disk to do so, then you have to partition your diskaccordingly for each operating system you wish to install. ****** Have a look at WUBI, which is a program that allow Ubuntu to beinstalled as a file on a Windows computer, withou…t making anychanges to the Windows hard drive. It can be uninstalled like anyother program using Windows add and remove utility. (MORE)
If you told the installer to use the entire hard drive, Windows will be erased. If you told it to resize the partitions on the disk, Windows should still be bootable from the GRUB boot menu. If the installer was interrupted before GRUB could be installed, Windows is probably still intact, but lacks …any boot loader to launch it. Reinstall Linux to fix the problem. (MORE)
What file system do you use if you are installing Windows xp as a dual boot with windows 9x me windows NT Windows 2000?
If you are installing windows XP with Windows 9x or me than the I would recommend you to use FAT32 as if you use NTFS than you wont be able to access Windows XP with NTFS partition.If you are installing Windows XP with Windows NT or Windows 2000 than you can use any partition type. But I would recom…mend to use NTFS. (MORE)
Install Windows first, if you have not installed either yet. After it is installed, just install Linux to the other partition or disk. Most modern Linux distributions use GRUB, which will detect and automatically configure a menu for you to choose from when you start the computer.
Dual-booting Windows XP/Vista with 7 . 1) Download Windows 7 (see related links) 2) Partition your hard drive: In XP or Vista, go to the start menu, right click computer, and click Manage. Then click Disk Management, select the drive of which you want 7 installed in the bottom window. Assumi…ng you have unpartitioned space on this drive, right click the unpartitioned space and hit an entry that somewhat means create a new partition, I think it says "create simple volume". This partition should have atleast 20GB space available to it. 3.) Installing Windows 7 Burn the ISO you downloaded from the Microsoft website, and boot from the DVD or whatever drive you put the ISO on. Once at the setup screen, select your language and keyboard design/setup/thing. Once that's done, click custom, and BE CAREFUL, be sure to select the partition you made! Or this will wipe the other partition. Then simply install and wait several hours for it to finish, after it's done, you can boot up your computer and you will see an entry for Windows 7 on your boot screen. Now you can enjoy Windows 7 and still keep your XP OS :-) (MORE)
You could either: a) just ignore it or b) repartition the Linux partition and format it as ntfs so that windows can see it Answer You'll need: 1. A windows98 boot disc (or windows xp recovery console) 2. A non-destuctive partition editor, such as partition magic or acronis disc suite (both for win…dows, not free, may not work, I lean toward Acronis) or Gparted (free, live-CD, I will explain the process using gparted, but they are all basically the same). Steps: 1. Make sure you have a windows98 boot disc or windows xp recovery console (I'll explain both), THIS IS CRUCIAL! (My mom thinks Linux is evil because I didn't have either). 2. After backing up really important data (only if you have any ;) ), boot from the gparted live-CD. 3. If everything works correctly you should have a screen with a multi-colored bar representing your harddrive and all partitions on it (if it's all grey, you need to select your harddrive from a drop down menu) 4. Select your Linux partition (HINT: it's probly formated in ext2 or ext3) from the bar and delete it (don't worry if you mess up, it hasn't been deleted yet). Do the same thing with the Linux-swap and extended partition. 5. Now everything the bar should be grey EXEPT for your windows partition (usually colored cyan). Make sure it's there, if it's not, hit the back arrow. 6. If everything looks good (and I mean EVERYTHING), apply your settings. 7. If you want to resize your windows partition you may want to do it now. Otherwise reboot and......NOTHING! GRUB ERROR! WHAT THE HELL IS THAT! WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO NOW! (that's what happened to me) 8. If you're dumb like I was, call tech support and grovel, otherwise boot up your trusty win98 CD and enter the command "fdisk /mbr" (no quotes don't forget the space) -or- Go into your winxp recovery console and type the command "fixmbr" 9. If all went well, good times will be had by all. And if you used the win98 boot disk KEEP IT, those things are worth their weight in gold! As an IT guy, this is by far, my greatest tool EVER, and in some cases, the PERFECT GIFT! Answer Or you can just go to your fdisk command or whatever the NTFS command is and delete the ext3 partitions and leave the NTFS (MORE)
Of course you can. The de facto standard bootloader, GRUB, is the reference implementation of the multi-boot specification.
boot the system you need the file to be in, and navigate to the other systems folders.
Yes. Doing so isn't particularly difficult, and most Linux installation discs can guide you through the process.
In order to legally and easily boot Mac, you must have a Mac. If this is the case, and its operating system is Leopard or Snow Leopard, you can open the Boot Camp utility, partition the drive, insert your Windows 7 disk (either burned from the release candidate or purchased next month), and install.… If you have a PC with Windows 7, it is legally questionable whether you can install OS X on it (it goes against the license agreement), and it is also difficult. You may be able to find tutorials online. (MORE)

I am not able to view my Boot loader screen today after I installed Windows Xp Sp3 in another partition Earlier I could select either Windows Xp-sp2 Windows 7-32bit or Windows 7-64bit?
I had the exact same problem with my own computer. Apparently, Windows 7 doesn't work that well with Windows XP's boot loader (when dual booting). I solved the problem (well...sort of) by booting into my Windows 7 partition, Installing EasyBCD (http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1) and adding Windows XP …to the boot loader again.

Yes. Some versions of Unix are capable of running on the same hardware as Windows. Mac OS X, a certified version of UNIX, includes a utility known as "Boot camp" to install Windows in a dual-boot setup easily. Solaris 10 can also be used in a dual-boot setup by carefully partitioning the drive and s…etting up GRUB. (MORE)
Absolutely. In fact, the default bootloader for Linux is the reference implementation of the multi-boot standard. It's mostly Windows that doesn't like to multiboot.
Go into your BIOS and change the settings to start from CD/DVD player first instead of your hard drive. Let the CD boot follow the instructions for language and time zone. You can either let Fedora use the empty space left on your hard drive to set partions for you or you can manually set your own p…artions then just follow the instructions and hit next a couple of times then reboot.

I upgraded vista to windows 7 and now i want to use vista without deleting windows 7 but i already installed windows 7 so that means i can't dual boot right so what do i do?
You can still dual boot. 1) Download a program that makes partitions in your hard drive 2) Partition so there is as much space as you need to install Vista 3) Install Vista on the separate partition as a CLEAN INSTALL (This step must be done in order for it to work 4) Once installed, start up comput…er and there should be two options to boot OS. Just choose the one that you want. Hope this helps! (MORE)
You can partition your hard drive and install Windows Server onto the partitioned space. You then can boot up from either Windows 7 or Windows Server.
No, it would not, as you only boot with one OS at a time, not both of them simultaneously. However the data transfers between the two partitions (one for Linux and other for windows) would take slightly longer than what it would have taken with only one partition. You would have lesser space than …before.(as Linux would take some space for installation) (MORE)
Yes. Though with a hard disk of such small size it'd probably justbe a good idea to just do Windows 7 and Linux.
Get the Linux bootable CD.then boot it on ur sys.go to setup wizard normally. At the tym of choosing the partition on the hard disk, select the option "install siden by side on windows" (I've applied this on my sys using ubuntu Linux)
You could use Wubi (Ubuntu Linux), GParted, fdisk or cfdisk. I recommend installing Windows first (if it's not there already) and then Linux.
Other than using more disc space to contain both operating systems, there are no inherent disadvantages.
I'm not sure what you mean. But Windows installation disks have all required software to start and proceed with installation or any other activity.
Yes, it's called dual-boot. Be sure to have Windows installed first so your Linux installer might be able to pick it up and put it in the bootloader, not to mention to keep GRUB from getting overwritten by a monopolistic bootloader by Windows.
Yes, you can. It's called dualbooting. I guess with Linux you mean a Linux Distribution like Ubuntu? Check the related link if you want to know how.
I use windows 7 ultimate and i use *windows xp mode* which you can download if windows 7 is genuine
Now why would you want to do a thing like that? Haha, Just kidding! I'm assuming that you're running a Linux-based OS alongside Windows. If that is the case, removing Linux from the picture is fairly simple. After backing all of your stuff up (in both OS's! Trust me on this!), boot into Windows. …Click Start, right-click the "computer" menu item and go to "manage". In the window that appears, click "Disk Management" on the left pane. You should now see your partition table. In the lower half of the window you'll see your C drive, D drive, etc. Simply delete the partitions that hold your Linux OS and backup images (for Linux). Then delete the empty partition. After that, right-click your windows drive and click "extend volume". A wizard will guide you through the process of giving your HD back to Windows. But we're not done yet! I'm assuming that your Linux distro installed GRUB or a similar program to allow for OS selection on boot. Unfortunately, once installed, Grub becomes a part of your master boot record. Since modern pc manufacturers have opted to save the extra dollar or so and not give a cd containing the OS image, you will have to use system recovery to re-install windows (See why I told you to back up both OS's?), otherwise your system will boot up until it hits GRUB and then stop because GRUB can't handle a hard disk with less than two operating systems. So far I haven't found a way around this short of a re-install OR a small 'placeholder' Linux install just to keep grub happy (wouldn't have to be larger than a gig or two. (MORE)
Dual booting is not restricted to Linux. Dual booting refers to the presence of two operating systems on one computer. Switch/choice between these operating systems is determined at boot time (either via bios or boot manager), therefore only one operating system is at use at a time.
Go to the System Preferences , select Start up Disk and select the Windows partition. Or you can press and hold down the Option key immediately after the chime and then select the Windows icon.
Yes, you can. Split the disk in at least 2 partitions. First install Windows 2000 on disk C and then install Windows 7 on the disk D. You can install Windows 2000 on disk D and then Windows 7 on disk C. But the order of installation must be preserved.
Yes you can. Ubuntu's WUBI uses the Windows bootloader (NTLDR) to boot Linux. It also uses the Windows filesystem (NTFS). This, however, is not the traditional way to do things. The traditional way to dual-boot Linux and Windows is to use a generic bootloader such as Grub to boot both Windows and Li…nux. (MORE)

Yes, the Windows 7 DVD's let you boot up the DVD's menu for repairing or installing Windows when inserted into a external or internal DVD drive.

Which is better idea to install Linux on windows 7 basic dual boot or side by side or using virtual box?
Do you know how to partion a hard drive? Are you positive about using Ubuntu? If you answered "no" to either use a virtual box until you can answer "yes" to both.
Most Linux distros will by default install themselves secondary to Windows, BUT you MUST FIRST make a separate partition on your HD for Linux to install on, for the install erases everything that is already on that partition. How to do that is found in your Windows Help. If that's a problem for y…ou, many Linux distros can be run from a CD or DVD, without installation to the HD, so you can try them out to get the feel of them. Knoppix is one such distro. If you want something as like to Windows as possible, try Lubuntu or its parent Ubuntu. But be aware that Linux is NOT a free windows. If you are a command line junkie like myself, I recommend Slackware. If you are into designing and building your own OS based on the Linux kernel, try Arch. In short, the various Linux distros (or flavors) are all different to one another, each having their own design philosophy. Deciding which one you want will be your major problem. Google 'linux reviews'. (MORE)

If you have errors coming up when you have Windows 7 and Windows 8 installed on a computer, it may be best to delete those two programs. By deleting the files, you will be able to install the correct program correctly.
First make partitions for the operating systems - first windows 8 then fedora partitions of / swap and /home - then First install window 8 after having made partitions for both operating systems, then install fedora to the partition previously made for installing it.

There are several types of bootloaders - it's up to you to decidewhich one to use (isolinux, syslinux, LILO, Grub [or Grub Legacy],and Burg are some to get you started).
There is no such thing as a "Linux 7". Even if there is a Linuxdistribution trying to market itself as a Windows 7 lookalike, itwould be in a lot of legal trouble with Microsoft.
