Multiple, Totally Independent WinXP Installs on the Same HardDrive via Grub - Solved!
Originally Titled: Installing WinXP to Logical Partition via Imaging Software...any editing needed?
Just built a new rig and put WinXP on it for gaming. I'm useing Linux, VL specifically, as my primary OS though, don't worry lol. :)
Current OS Hard Drive Setup
hda1 - WinXP NTFS
hda5 - Linux swap
hda6 - VectorLinux ReiserFS
I'd like a second WinXP install to play around with WinOS software without messing up my primary WinOS install. I have a copy of Acronis True Image 8.x and already have an image made of my primary hda1 WinXP partition. I thought about just pushing the image to hda7, rerunning lilo, and seeing what happens. But I thought it would be best to look into it first.
Using imaging software gets around WinXP's stupid installer, and WinXP is installed at the beginning of the drive. I'm just not sure what I need to edit, if anything. Would I have to edit either of the XP installs' boot.ini file(s) or something?
Tried a bit of googling but didn't find anything discussing something like this.
