I'm going to tackle the challenge of multibooting my laptop. I've found very little info on multibooting with Windows 7. Should I just use the same procedures as I would with a Vista machine?
Also what do y'all recommend for partitioning?

Thank you very much,

Hello pigpickup and welcome to HTG, and about your question, would like to ask you, does your laptop have the requirement(enough) hardware pieces to run three Operating Systems Win 7 + XP PRO + Linux !?

Best wishes,

Minimum hard disk size for those 3 would be about 10GB. The problem will be finding drivers.

I believe I have the proper requirements. My laptop is fairly new with a huge (500 gig) HD and a fair amount of RAM (4 gig RAM). You are right, I didn't think about the drivers. Oh and it's 64 bit as well, so I'm not sure if that will be a problem, either.

Is this the info you needed Shkumbin?

Thanks very much. :-)
