Clarification regarding dual boot of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008
Hello all, this is my first post on sevenforums. Though I've referred to sevenforums many a times, never registered because I always found similar questions posted by others.
Anyways, I'm preparing to dual boot my Windows 7 machine(already installed) with Windows Server 2008. I've discovered that booting from VHD is a great option and I found all the commands for it online. But before I do it, just want to make I'm doing it the right way.
Two of the commands for creating a VHD is:
CREATE VDISK FILE=c:\windows7rc.vhd MAXIMUM=200000 TYPE=EXPANDABLE SELECT VDISK FILE=c:\windows7rc.vhd
I've attached a screen shot of my existing partitions. I have a partition of 97.66 GB which is unallocated on which I'd like to install Server 2008.
My question is do I need to change anything in the above command?
Thanks in advance.
