How can I take a screenshot like this?

alt text

I tried pressing Prnt Scrn, and then trying to paste it in MS Paint after booting to Vista, but it did not work.

    Print Screen will never work because a "clipboard" is an OS-level feature (and even higher level - X11 - on Linux). – user1686 Sep 11 '10 at 21:47

Create a Linux virtual machine with VirtualBox, VMware, etc. and screen capture it from your host operating system.

  • yes, I thought of that. Actually the OS is already installed (not on a virtual machine), and I needed to post screenshots at this question. – Lazer Sep 11 '10 at 15:42
  • Yeah, unfortunately there isn't any hardware-level clipboard and likely never will be ;( but VMs have it good in terms of cross-OS clipboards. (I always consider it cheating xD) – WindowsEscapist Jun 23 '12 at 19:57
