Windows 7: Dual Booting & Integration

16 Jan 2009   #1

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.

Have a look at this.

Dual booting XP and 7?
So I'm currently dual booting XP and 7, so far no problems other than the fact that every time I want to boot into XP I have to change my SATA settings in the bios menu to ATA instead of AHCI I believe, is there any way around this? Thanks
