I've read that, when configuring a dual-boot system, you should install Windows first to avoid any issues. However, I have not read an explanation that makes sense to me. Some questions:
I'm assuming this has to do with the boot loader so: How is Windows boot loader so different that this matters? If I'm totally off, please explain.
Is this the same case with Windows 7 and Windows XP?
Depending on question 1 of course: Will installing Windows later on mean that it will definitely not work or just that you might encounter issues later on? Some tutorials are kind of ambiguous about that point.
