    Wikndows 8 in virtual - from an external disk

    Since I still do my work in Windows 7, I decided to run Windows 8 in virtual. Advantage is that I can switch seemlessly between the two Windows systems and easily share data.

    I was bored, so I made this - enjoy

    I have 2 internal disks. On disk 1 (HDD) I have Vista. On disk 2 (SSD) I want to install Windows7. For the W7 installation I would disconnect disk 1 because I do not want a double boot but I use the BIOS boot sequence to switch between the 2 disks. I am wondering whether that is possible with...
