I have a great high end HP Workstation with 6-TB (4 Independent HD's) I would like to add the latest Linux os desktop and Ubuntu 12.04 - in addition to the 2 Windows 7 OSs I have, and if possible to add Windows XP Pro as well.
Is there any Boot OS management software out there, of any kind, for this - I have not done much research on this, and I understand this is not common, but I hope to find some useful answers here if possible. I am looking for a simple way to be able to dual, triple and quadruple boot. I had 3 Win 7 bootable at startup - but not with other different OS's. Is there any kind of software for this? Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
This all came about when I got the new 3TB Seagate internal HD and as it turns out I can only see 2TB and not all 3TB. For many years I have been a Seagate user and find their Hard Drives to be very solid, reliable and durable - yet this became a challenge because the "patches" did not solve the issue to expand the additional space on the drive. It turns out I would have to use Raid+AHCI instead of IDE and upgrade the Bios - very annoying and even more annoying - I would not be able to have my other bootable Win 7 os's appear because they were created in IDE's environment.
After all that I realized the performance was not going to be that much different and so I switched back to IDE's environment and ended up returning the 3-TB HD and got two new 2-TB Hard Drives instead and installed my new Win 7 os on one of the new 2-TB HD's - I can see both Win 7 Bootable OS's at startup which is great - So now I am curious to know if is there anyway for me to install Win XP Pro, Linux and or Ubuntu 12.04 in addition to my existing Win 7 OS's on my additional internal hard drives? If so what software is available for this? Any feedback would be great.
