I have a dual boot of XP Home & Vista Business on a 80G HD and hide the Vista
partition from XP using PartitionMagic. I have swapped booting between both
OS's 4-5 times each (hiding the Vista partition before booting to XP) and XP
hasn't deleted the Vista restore points.
Several of my programs that I have written for work need to run on Vista, so
I am testing them.
Anyway, hiding the Vista partition from XP is pretty simple for me. I have
a bootable thumb drive with PartitionMagic on it and I just insert it while
I'm in Vista, reboot my PC, and use PartitionMagic to hide the partition. So
far, so good...
I know that Microsoft wants everyone to go to Vista, but alot of us need to
exist in both worlds during some sort of transition period. It's interesting
that Vista's help warns you that dual-booting with an earlier version of
windows deletes the Vista restore points. They knew about it and released
Vista without a fix anyway...
