Hide Windows from Windows?
One of my machines (laptop; HPdv9000, 2 internal disks), has Vista, PCLOS, Ubuntu, FC10, and XPPro.
Vista is on hd0, XPPro is on hd1. How do I 'conceal' XPPro from Vista? I tried uninstalling the second disk in Device Manager while Vista is booted, but it re-installs the second disk at re-boot. (XPPro is a hacked edition), and I've heard that Vista signs digitally all hardware that it logs onto.
Save the morality lesson please, I lost a laptop in an accident, and MS won't authorize re-installing it on another machine. They got their money. So I'm sort of 'underground', with a VLKbootleg edition (and a permanent disability, but that's fine too; the drinkin' driver who got me was killed).
Is this a case for a VM install? Slipstream install? Or is there a configuration setting in Vista that I've missed?
