I wouldn't like to mess with my 4 PRIMARY Partitions, but given the limited number of primary partitions that someone can have on a single HardDrive, is it possible to boot OSs instead from the 4 primary, from a HardDrive with more than 5 LOGICAL partitions, using a software like BootIT ?

Thanks
Regards

1) You can have 3 primary and then an Extended partition with almost unlimited additional partitions that are bootable.

2) Via hiding, it may be possible.
Not sure bootit has this, but there are plenty of other options.

I hope this helps !
