No, it will not, it depends on how you have your boot priority set in BIOS!

coz my main aim right now is to boot windows 7 but re-placing back the VBR -> bootmgr -> winload.exe into the correct positions to allow a windows 7 boot up as thou nthing was modified .. in this case i can actually zip the OS n keep and it i can restore it into my third partition anytime i wan jus like a pendrive plug n play OS... (sounds dumb yea but its jus something i am working on (my own interest) which is kinda interesting on knowing the flow of all this details)
What will Variable Bit Rate accomplish, are you trying to perform a dual install?

oh god don't tell me people been misunderstanding VBR stands for Variable Bit Rate ????

VBR here stands for Volume Boot Record not Variable Bit Rate (this is for audio purpose)..

Volume Boot Record is at the start position of each partition that is created.

If you only have 1 partition the usually people just call it Master Boot Record but in-fact even that is wrong .. because.. Master Boot Record will eventually call the partition executable code which is the volume boot record to boot up the OS.

i will edit all of the forum entries and put VBR = Volume Boot Records seem like people are misunderstanding me.
