Hello all,

I was wondering if there was a way to dual boot the same OS.

So, install Windows 7 on my hard drive, then, manually enter a entry into some config file somwhere so I can have the choice to boot into Windows 7 OR Windows Media center.

With Windows Media Center being part of Windows 7, then you can understand why I need to "Boot into the same OS".

Booting into Windows 7 is obviously straight forward. But setting up a manual entry so it boots straight into Windows Media Center... is this possible?
