I'm usually on StackOverflow, but had a question about dual booting. I have been happily using Windows 7 booting to VHD ever since the RC. Now I am taking a class where the instructor wants us to install Fedora 12 KDE and, obviously, I want to keep Windows 7 and dual boot to this system. I'd rather not use a virtual machine like VirtualBox, since we need to do some things in regards to writing software drivers and the fact that it is going to be slower than booting to a physical machine (that said, there's nothing like boot to VHD for Linux/GRUB, is there?).
My dilemma is that once I install it I am afraid I will screw up the Windows 7 boot-loader and be unable to boot to Windows 7 because it is a VHD file.
Any thoughts on if this is true and how I can accomplish this safely?
