The definitive dual-booting guide: Windows 7, Linux, Vista and XP step-by-step


UPDATED | How to set up your PC to dual-boot between Windows 7, Linux, XP or Vista! We've done the hard work and put together a totally step-by-step guide with screenshots.



If you've ever asked for advice on how to set up dual-booting, you've doubtlessly come across online tutorials that only tell part of the story.
You probably ended up spending all weekend researching the intricacies of adjusting partition sizes, boot loaders, installing operating systems in the right order, and other fun topics.
Well, we have good news: we have put together the definitive dual-booting guide.
We've thoroughly tested these methods and taken screenshots of every step, and we keep them up-to-date, each time a new service pack of Windows is released, or a new version of Ubuntu Linux. We aim to have the world's best information on dual-booting operating systems!
So... enjoy!



UPDATE: Do you want to run one of these operating systems under virtualization rather than dual-booting? Try our new ULTIMATE virtualization guide, which describes how to use Sun's free VirtualBox app to install an operating system within another one.
