Quick and painless, I have a partitioned SSD with win 7 and Linux back box on it and I just bought a second monitor. I was wondering if one monitor could display win7 and the other back box off the same drive? Thanks in advance.
If you're dual booting, no. Only one OS can be running at a time.
You can then have the console for the Virtual Machine on the other screen, possibly full screen depending on which software you use, and interact with them at the same time.
