Windows Linux DualBoot Tutorial
This tutorial was written to help set up a dual boot on a SATA drive but it will also work for PATA so continue forward and I will let you know if you need to skip something. In order to have a fully functional dual boot system it is preferred that Windows be loaded first. After that you can load Linux and easily dump the boot configuration on Windows NTLDR file (comparable to Linux boot file).
At least one of the following scenarios exist and that is why you are here reading this tutorial;
* You have a new Serial HDD (SATA) with no software installed,
* You have a new Parallel HDD (PATA) with no software installed,
* You have a HDD with Windows already installed, or
* You have a HDD with Linux already installed.
