If you format C, goodbye to Z loading.


You need a partitioning program that will install a boot loader as step 1 in setting up the hard drive. I believe Paragon Partition Manager will do this.

At boot time it will ask which system to load.

@mdamon, I'm still working on this for you but it doesn't look good.
