I've got a nephew who has a laptop (a beater) that with WinXP that he uses for work.
(He's a field tech and there are 2 or 3 windows applications that he needs to use)
About a month ago, he created a image of his drive, then installed Linux on his laptop.
He was happy with the change, but found that he couldn't work around the windows apps he needs to use
My first thought since the software requirement isn't needed that often, VirtualBox was the obvious solution, however due to the limited CPU of the laptop he's using it crashes consistently after 5-10 min.
A image was created of the Linux installation, and the XP image has since been re-instituted.
The question (and mind you I don't think it's possible with out clean installs), is If the hard drive was large enough, is there a way to use both images (XP/Linux) to give the laptop dual boot functionality?
