View Full Version : [ubuntu] Run a windows installation in ubuntu

May 13th, 2008, 01:06 AM
I have a laptop with two hard drive bays, where one HDD has vista installed on it and the other has ubuntu installed on it. I use the vista HDD sparingly, except for Microsoft office 2007 every now and then. Is there any software to use to run my vista installation from my second hard drive virtually (or whatever it's called) as I run ubuntu from my primary HDD. Generally, I would use vmware or similar software to install vista and run it in ubuntu, but HP only gave me factory settings image disc and not the actual vista installation disc. So although this method is doubtfull, I was just wondering if it was possible.
