My goal is to try and clone a working windows7 partition and be able to boot each copy from the same disk. I need to hide the windows installations from each other as well and each copy must boot as C:.
What i've done so far is to install linux server 12.04 on the first primary partition. The 2 windows7 clones are on primary partiton 2 and 3. I created 2 windows entries in grub and used the parttool to hide the windows installations from each other. This almost worked, the first clone on partition 2 boots fine without seeing number 2 but I'm having trouble booting number 2, it starts as far as displaying a windows logo but then it froze. I suspect I need to modify my second clone of windows in some way. Tried changing the UUID but that did not help.
Has anyone tried to do this?
