HOW TO: dual boot with LMCE 8.10
« on: May 23, 2009, 09:24:56 am »

Is there a way i can setup a dual boot with something and LMCE 7.10 and LMCE 8.10
It just that my 3 year old will go mental if i kill my current setup, and his million plus videos.  they are what he uses for his afternoon nanna nap and all three boys use it for there bed time.  Also mum will kill me if i stuff up the 3 year olds nanna nap in A N Y W A Y.

I have a second HDD if that helps any.

ASUS P5Q SE/R, Gigabyte 8400GS - Composite TV, 4GB 1066, Intel E8500 3.15GHz dual core, 500GB HDD + 1TG HDD, Divco FusionHDVT DVB-T Digital Dual 4 TV tuner.

Have not tried it myself, but I am pretty sure that you can just install Linuxmce on the second disk or a second parttition. You can then on booting the server select what version you want.

You can also change the default selection in the 0810 /boot/grub/menu.lst
