Hello Ken.


I've had 6, if you count the one I had on a bootable VHD for a while, I just deleted two other builds of 7 then I just added the Server 2008.

I haven't thought about a "prize" but that would be interesting.

I'm in XP right now, as I wanted to make sure they were all still bootable; XP needed updated any way.

Now that the newer OS's don't need to be only on primary partitions, the sky's the limit. lol

Well, almost, you can have as many as the alphabet, 26. I think thats the limit.

Yes, the way I understand it, only the boot files have to operate from a primary now; does the use of bootable VHD's change the "drive letter" restriction?

I believe so, it looks that it is not necessary for diskpart to assign the vhd a drive letter. So it looks like the sky is the limit when including vhd's in the mix.

We need a badge for "Ridiculous Amount of Booting (y)" or something. It can go to whoever has the most OS's to boot from, plus the number.

the badge of ripley

I agree anyone with that much time on their hands should be recognised by a badge. It could be a color to be determined and signify the promotion to the elite and be bestowed with the order of ridiculousness in the first degree.

Love the phrasing. Definitely.
We could have an "Quad Boot Club" for quads and up, and then the one with the most gets like "Boot Guru" or something.

John, we are going to need more badge slots!!!!

How's this quad core you think?
So, I saw this quad core for super cheap so what you all think about it? Would it OC good? My mobo can handle up to 1600 FSB so I'm thinking about getting it and going strong with it. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115055
