Re: Fedora & XP on same machine, good bad or ugly



I, too, am quite happily running Windows XP and Fedora on a laptop on the same hard drive. For variety I've also done it with separate external hard drives over USB. A modern hardware system ought to be able to run multiple modern operating systems harmoniously from one or more hard drives. For me, it all works fine. Peter and others have noted the hardware clock issue which you have to take care of.

Good, Bad or ugly? Recommendations.

I have Win XP  and F10 installed on the same HDD on a Lenovo T60
laptop. No problems, but then I don't think I used the XP a single
time since installing Fedora. To my knowledge the only issue is
setting the hardware clock - when you install fedora, you choose a
particular way of setting the clock so it doesn't clash with the one
XP uses.

HTH,

I have much the same setup on my Toshiba A105-S4004, except I
patched the Windows registry for the hardware clock being in UTC. I
don't have the registry patch handy, but I can post it again if you
need it.
