I m running Windows 7 as my main OS. Besides, I run XP sp3 in VirtualBox and tried ubuntu 9.10 as a dual boot. However, I really dont feel a reason to run multiple OS besides testing purpose.

I only have one OS (windows 7) installed, but I have WHS & Windows Server 2008R2 on two local headless systems that I always have open via remote desktop.

Additionally I have four other remote 2003 - 2008R2 servers that are also always open in remote desktop.

I run five, but 7 x64 is my main OS.

I keep Vista for redunancy/testing, an x86 copy of 7 for testing, Ubuntu 9.10 because it's good to have a non-Windows OS and I'm keeping 7100 installed because I want to watch it die

lmao at that last OS...

Qant to watch it shutdown every two hours eh?

BTW is the timerbomb in 7 controlled by the Windows clock or the BIOS clock...I wonder if you change the BIOS clock and disable auto-synchronization, would you be able to activate the bomb...

Hello Dwarf.


I'd like to hear if you have the same experience as I did with the boot menu only displaying 6 boot options at one time.

Thanks!

Sure, Ted. I'll let you know. It might be a while though as I am considering starting from scratch and installing the OSes into their own individual partitions. Before I do that, I need to ensure that I have got the latest Sevice Packs for them, all the latest drivers for my hardware and, in the case of XP, a floppy containing the drivers for the storage controller as I am going to be using RAID0 again. Whatever happens, it should be an interesting experience.
