I cannot tell you which SHOULD come first. In my case, I installed XP first, and Vista second - because following Vista with an XP installation destroys the boot loader. XP will not detect Vista or offer a dualboot option. Similarly, following this dual boot with a Linux installation will install a 'lilo' or 'grub'. Grub is becoming the most popular boot loader, and installing it last will ensure that you can boot all of…

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. The only thing is that when ever I boot into Xp (which is rare now) and then shut down, the Windows 7 boot loader is…

In general you don't need to remove Grub from your system. You can just comment out the Ubuntu installation boot partition from the menu, and leave the Vista line alone. If you wish to remove Grub you typically would need the installation disk or any Windows CD for the fixmbr program to replace the Grub loader, but I would recommend just leaving it alone and doing the commenting out from the above paragraph.
The previous answer stated that "From what I know, there is no way to do it. Even if there was a way, one OS would be messed up.Try putting them on ONE harddrive." I believe this answer is incorrect. As explained by Miscrosoft: "In earlier versions of the Windows operating system that run on a basic input/output system (BIOS)-based computer, such as Windows XP, the boot process starts with the system BIOS. The BIOS determines…

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 computer and there should be two options to boot OS. Just choose the one that you want. Hope…
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 Linux.

On a computer with both Windows Vista and either Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 installed, Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 deletes any existing System Restore points belonging to Windows Vista during boot. Microsoft confirms this issue but maintains that it is a fundamental function of the way XP works and cannot be changed. According to Microsoft, the solution is to install Windows Vista on a separate partition invisible to XP.
