Nope! Now you got to call MS and register your Linux ISO key and report your computer hardware. They then take your application for dual boot and present it before a review board within 30 days. You have to pass the review board by a 60% margin then they submit the work order into the system. While the work order is being processed you can contact the MS financial office to set up a payment plan (you know Linux infringes on MS patent and copyright law and if you want MS to demean itself to share the same computer with Linux then you must pay the Linux royalities) for the activation bootloader which will be sent to you within 30 business days of the work order being finalized.

F**K I didn't realize it had changed that much, I thought Vista was XP with a new UI , DirectX 10 and a big price tag :confused:

:rolleyes: *Ahem*...back to the question? Well, Jim's wiki has a good tutorial about dual booting: http://jimlawrnc.mine.nu/mywiki/DualBootLinux Keep in mind that you can also bios-switch to boot either distro too (just in case you're working through the right tweaks in grub).

Believe? Heck, it's already all over Digg.com and Fark! Bill Gates denied it, but did acknowledge that the EULA now gives MS ownership of any hard drive on which Vista is installed as well as the contents of any personal data entered therein.

But, no harm done, let's get back to the bottle.

Check this link. An interesting artice that gives a brief explanation of why Dual Booting with Vista takes a couple extra steps. MS has changed the Boot Loader. I haven't tried it yet but plan on trying it later this evening.

As for the Vista EULA. I read the whole thing. Typical MS but not as bad as has been reported.
