Enhancing Your Dual Boot System

Enhancing Your Dual Boot System

In my last article I showed you how to create a dual boot system of both Windows 7 and Ubuntu. It was a step by step guide to get allow you to run both Operating Systems on one machine. Even though both are on the same drive more can be done to increase the unison between them. Some of the things I will go over in this article are:

  • Windows 7

    • Moving the default save locations for your profile to the “Data” partition which you created in while working through the previous article.
  • Ubuntu

    • Mounting your “Data” partition
    • Moving the default save locations for your profile to the “Data” partition.
  • Both OS

So when you’re finished going through this guide you will be able to swap between both Windows 7 and Ubuntu and never have to worry about moving files around before swapping. This will make life twice as easy and will also help you when adding other software into the OS and make them interchangeable as well.

  1. Lately my interests in Duel boot has become more and more interesting. I never would have thought about using Ubuntu and windows 7 but it seem to me it can be done. So I will have to try it out.

    • I am glad that you have intrest in dualbooting, and I really hope that my article helps you.

      You can for the most part swap into just about an OS in for the ones I have. So far i currently have successfully done Win7 and Ubuntu, Win7 Kubuntum, Win7 and Linux MCE (deffently not the funnest or recommeneded), XP and Ubuntu. I attmpted Win7 and FreeBSD but ran into driver issues with my system and the FreeBSD 9http://www.freebsd.org/).

      Also there is alot more ways to both intergrate and enchance your your system. I probably some time in the furture write another article with more tools, tips, and suggestions. Also if you find anything that you don’t understand or have a problem with post a comment and I will do my best to get answer/solution for you.
