Run Windows and Mac OS Both at Once
Primary drive 01 not found and a firewire question Dell 8300
The history: Running WINXP SP2 BIOS A04. PC is just over 2 years old. The 8300 came with a 120GB SATA drive. Later, I added a 250GB IDE drive ('cause I didn't know any better...
A minor note, just a week or two earlier Microsoft announced a trial version of a bit of software that would let you run more than one MS OS at the same time on the same machine:
But this doesn't require that you reboot the machine to switch from one MS OS to another.
Then Apple announces their idea, but you have to reboot the machine to switch from one to the next.
How long until someone fuses these two ideas? And we can use the Apple OS as the firewall to protect the MS OS from the real world? Now that might be interesting.
I have to wonder whether Microsoft's announcement is either setting the stage for something like this with Apple OR whether MS has a horde of customers that won't migrate because they still can't get critical applications to work on newer OS and MS is trying to lure them into a gradual transition.
But I suppose with the way things are going we will need one gig of memory for each OS kernel and another gig for video memory, and THEN add on whatever user memory you need. :)
