Hi all, I was wondering something and is hoping someone can give me a lending hand. Ok, here is what I've been thinking.. lets say I made my system dual boot, Boot A as Windows 7, Boot B as maybe , lets say windows XP. after making this work, in windows 7, I go to Advanced tab in system properties and made windows 7 as the primary booting OS and turn off the "time to display list of OS" so as to make it that the system will autoboot into windows 7 without letting the user know there is a windows XP partition in the system as well.. Then using group policy, I hide the partition containing Windows XP. ok, here comes my questions. 1) Lets say the user while using windows 7, contracted a virus that infects all available EXE in the system, with the hidden partition with my Windows XP be infected as well? 2) lets say the aforementioned windows 7 is corrupted beyond rescue, is there any way to make the system boot up the Windows XP in that hidden partition (assuming that with my question 1, the windows XP is safe from the virus) Any help will be appreciated.. Thank you..
