comment Testing different OS's with multiboot and Windows Home Server
In the steps above, does one of the steps put the MBR in a separate partition (I thought that was desirable)? Also, what's the relation between MBR and bootloader, does every OS have a bootloader? Thanks

~quack, Thanks for the reply. Sorry I didn't get back sooner, my question was moved from ServerFault and I didn't notice until now. "You will run into MBR issues on the test machine, so plan your bare-OS installations in an order that takes care of these issues." This is the part I'm unclear on. I'm testing software, so I want to be able to quickly install a clean OS to test on - basically a throw away OS install. If I install correctly the first time, can I restore over (e.g.) the XP install without destroying the other OS's (or the MBR)? I'm confused by the OS "coupling", basically.
