Windows 7: Dual Booting Win7x64 & Server 2K8

Dual Booting Win7x64 & Server 2K8


I'm curious if anyone out there has managed to dual boot between Windows 7 & Server 2k8 and if there are any recommendations that can be made? I've setup systems in the past where multiple dual boots were used i.e. Windows Xp, Windows Vista & Windows 7 all on 3 seperate partitions.

With this new dual boot, I plan on using two separate drives to ensure a problem free environment. I only ask as this is the place where actual responses are useful and helpful.

BTW, I managed to run the OS's in a VM so now is the time to migrate to the real deal.

Any assistance would be appreciated
