Windows 7: Dual Boot time?

The advantage of integration seen with the XP Mode is the lack of any need for it since you already have full access to internal drives along with the optical and usb flash drives for direct transfers. On the VHDs where Windows was custom installed you would need shared folders there however.

The only time the dvd drive and not even the second optical drive installed is available for the custom installs on vhds however is during the installation itself when starting up the VPC simply while the bootable media is in the drive. Instead of seeing the XP Mode start up if installed you see the media active at that time and begin to load. Boot your live cd while in Windows!
