i have not startid this its just some thing im thinking about
im going to re install 7 and xp in dual boot and was wondering if i can put each os on a diff partitions, so far no problems but could i put all the program files downloads pics ect in a diff partition and have both os's accessing the same files??
i know one major flow with this will be driver cabs, but could i re-direct all essentially windows drivers and programs in a second program file in there partition? could this be done outside of the registry by changing simple directory's and a few computability changes on the shortcuts?
PLANED LAY OUT OF HDDS
partition one = win 7 70gb
partition two = win xp + essential programs + drivers 50gb
partition three = program + essential programs + drivers
(files shered) 380gb
partition one =downloads 500gb
partition two =pictures muisic and arcives 500gb
hdd 3 2tb = midia (movies ect) and back ups
possibly with a luinx in there some were as a trouble shooter like ubcd
is it even worth trying this or is it destined to fail??
already have HDDs 2 and 3 set as above though not tested it in dual boot
Thanx all POG13
