Windows 7: Dual Booting & Integration

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit Retail
Dual Booting & Integration

Hi everyone, just come accross this website in need of information on dual booting.

I have two hard drives, one with Vista x64 and will install Windows 7 x64. The thing is, I've noticed there's a different way of how the folders are arranged.

Is there a way to direct the documents, music, pictures, downloads folders to the ones on my other drive. This way whenever I switch between both OS's I have the same documents.

I have tried editing the shell folders registry entry and changed the library folders around but it still won't show anything from the other hard drive.

Can anyone help me out.

Hello sandeep, welcome to Se7en Forums!

Please be more specific, as I can access anything I want on any of my HDD/partitions.

Have a look at this.
