I have a laptop with two partitions- one with a Windows 8 Pro, and the other with a BackTrack5 Linux OS. I can easily switch between the two, provided that I restart the laptop.
Is it possible to run the Linux in the background but boot into Windows 8? I know that I can virtualize Linux via Hypervisor, but I need full hardware control to use BackTrack5 efficiently, and Hypervisor forces me to use legacy drivers and no usb access.
My Galaxy Note can do this, boot via Android, run BackTrack5 ARM in the background, then VNC into it.
(can anyone think of a better title for this question? and better tags too..)
