Hi,

Install both operating systems on seperate partitions. You will then be able to boot either one of the Operating systems at a time.

If you want to run both the operating systems at the same time, use some virtualisatoin softwares like Microsoft Virtual PC or VMware workstation.

How to run a guest operating system inside a host operating system without dual...


Install virtual box from : Download VirtualBox

VirtualBox is a cross-platform virtualization application. What does that mean? For one thing, it installs on your existing Intel or AMD-based computers, whether they are running Windows, Mac, Linux or Solaris operating systems. Secondly, it extends the capabilities of your existing computer so that it can run multiple operating systems (inside multiple virtual machines) at the same time. So, for example, you can run Windows and Linux on your Mac, run Windows Server 2008 on your Linux server, run Linux on your Windows PC, and so on, all alongside your existing applications. You can install and run as many virtual machines as you like -- the only practical limits are disk space and memory.

An operating system "OS" or "DOS"


Operating Systems Means, Tips & Tools.Microsoft Windows Server 2008 is the company's latest server operating system. Officially launched in February 2008, Windows Server 2008 is the successor to Microsoft's previous server OS, Windows Server 2003.
"The other is Disk Operating System, in a general sense, DOS refers to just about any operating system. More commonly, it describes the operating system Microsoft developed in 1981 for IBM's line of personal computers. Though syntactically distinct, DOS shares similarities with a Unix shell. It has a command-line interface and analogs to many common Unix commands. However, DOS is a 16-bit, single-user operating system that does not support multi-tasking. It is far easier to administer than Unix, but less powerful. Compared to graphical interfaces such as Windows and Mac OS X, it's also not particularly user-friendly."
An operating system sometimes abbreviated as "OS".Operating System is the program that being initially loaded into the computer by a boot program or manages all the other programs in a computer. The other programs are called applications or application programs. The application programs make use of the operating system by making requests for services through a defined application program interface (API). In addition, users can interact directly with the operating system through a user interface such as a command language or a graphical user interface (GUI).
An operating system performs these services for applications:
  1. In a multitasking operating system where multiple programs can be running at the same time, the operating system determines which applications should run in what order and how much time should be allowed for each application before giving another application a turn.
  2. It manages the sharing of internal memory among multiple applications.
  3. It handles input and output to and from attached hardware devices, such as hard disks, printers, and dial-up ports.
  4. It sends messages to each application or interactive user (or to a system operator) about the status of operation and any errors that may have occurred.
  5. It can offload the management of what are called batch jobs (for example, printing) so that the initiating application is freed from this work.
  6. On computers that can provide parallel processing, an operating system can manage how to divide the program so that it runs on more than one processor at a time.
All major computer platforms (hardware and software) require and sometimes include an operating system. Linux, Windows 2000, VMS, OS/400, AIX, and z/OS are all examples of operating systems.

Meaning


The most important program that runs on a computer. Every general-purpose computer must have an operating system to run other programs. Operating systems perform basic tasks, such as recognizing input from the keyboard, sending output to the display screen, keeping track of files and directories on the disk, and controlling peripheral devices such as disk drives and printers. For large systems, the operating system has even greater responsibilities and powers. It is like a traffic cop -- it makes sure that different programs and users running at the same time do not interfere with each other. The operating system is also responsible for security, ensuring that unauthorized users do not access the system.
Operating systems can be classified as follows:
  • multi-user : Allows two or more users to run programs at the same time. Some operating systems permit hundreds or even thousands of concurrent users.
  • multiprocessing : Supports running a program on more than one CPU.
  • multitasking : Allows more than one program to run concurrently.
  • multithreading : Allows different parts of a single program to run concurrently.
  • real time: Responds to input instantly. General-purpose operating systems, such as DOS and UNIX, are not real-time.
  • Operating systems provide a software platform on top of which other programs, called application programs, can run. The application programs must be written to run on top of a particular operating system. Your choice of operating system, therefore, determines to a great extent the applications you can run. For PCs, the most popular operating systems are DOS, OS/2, and Windows, but others are available, such as Linux.
    As a user, you normally interact with the operating system through a set of commands. For example, the DOS operating system contains commands such as COPY and RENAME for copying files and changing the names of files, respectively. The commands are accepted and executed by a part of the operating system called the command processor or command line interpreter. Graphical user interfaces allow you to enter commands by pointing and clicking at objects that appear on the screen.

    My pc no running fast


    Hi

    I suggest that you run your computer on safe mode by pressing F8 when booting up and after that defragment your C: drive by going to start menu, choose accessories, choose system tools and choose disk defragment. It will surely run your computer faster that before. Do it on weekly basis to fix some errors in your computer.

    Otherwise the only solution is to repair your operating system but it will not delete any of your files. If you want, i can give you a video on how to repair your operating system but you need the operating system installer CD.

    I hope it helps you.

    I start up my computer, I get a black screen that says press F1, after I do that I get a black screen with a message that reads, operating system not functioning


    Hi,

    Have you take note the error message about the operating system? does it say a corrupted windows file?

    With regard to the error message about F1 to continue, i would say that your hard drive is looking for the operating system. There is a possibility that your operating system is corrupted due a virus infected file or a system file was accidentally deleted from your computer or it could be an issue with your hard drive itself.

    You may need to check also if your hard drive is detected by computer. You may call your computer manufacturer if your system still under warranty. In case the hard drive need to be replaced.

    I suggesst to run a system diagnostics first to check if the hard drive still functioning before you run windows repair using the operating disc you have with your system.



    Keep me posted.

    Windows vista


    Windows Vista is the new operative system distributed from Microsoft, following the previous release of Windows XP.

    An operative system is the interface between the user (you ) and the computer, that allows you to manage computer hardware resources and peripheral, and manage processes (software) running on your computer.

    From the user point of view The operative syste is the environment where you run applications, manage connected devices, storing files and starting and stopping programs.

    Vista is the latest OS released from Microsoft. It has a powerful interface, but it can be slow running on old computers. On vista you can also have some compatibility problem when you try to install old devices built for XP, such as printers, scanners etc.

    Windows NT operating system


    Your Kodak EasyShare digital camera will not work directly with a computer running the Windows NT operating system. The Windows NT operating system does not support the universal serial bus (USB) standard, and all Kodak EasyShare digital cameras communicate using the USB standard. However, you can transfer pictures from your camera to your computer by purchasing a parallel port card reader. Take the memory card with pictures from the camera, insert the memory card into the card reader, and then copy the pictures from the memory card to the computer.
