Hello murha

Yes, you can have them both, install vista first and then linux, ones you have your linux working you have to configure the bootloader in linux to also include the vista so you get a screen when you start up your pc

if your distro uses lilo heres what it would look like


unix with vista - ae16648.gif
All you would have to do to get vista working again would be to add the vista into the bootloader, the process differs between bootloaders so I'm not going to post how todo that, consult the documentation.

One thing thought, Id recommend you have atleast 2 hard drives since linux and windows don't use the same filesystem. You would have to partition your harddrive into 3 or more parts. Windows, linux and linux swap.

More on this in the documentation of your linux.


If this solution was any help at all please rate it as helpfull or fixya.
And if you need anything else let me know, you can ask me 24/7 by clicking
on the ask me button, I will ansver in most cases within 24hours.
Thanks and good luck!

What are the differences between windows vista and unix


Hi,

Hmmm... This is a BIG question, and it has a HUGE answer.
Have you ever seen Unix and Vista? I think you would immediately see the difference between the two.
1. Vista has a Graphic User interface, Unix is a command line interface.
2. Totally different systems (Filesystem, application, Kernel... whatever)
3. Age - Unix is ooold, and Vista is new (Unix dates back from the 1980's)

Well i can go on like this for days ...Google it more.

What is the difference between unix and linux


UNIX is a operating system which has only command user interface, and if the unix is installed in the system you cant install any other operating system after that ... one separate system must be allocated for the unix ...

LINUX is the graphical user interface and it supports multiple operating system ..

UNIX and LINUX are almost same, almost all commands which supports in UNIX supports in LINUX too .. with some extended features just like GUI(GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE),SECURITY,MULTI USER,MULTI TASKING,etc

COMMAND USER INTERFACE - the input is made to the computer by using commands and the output is obtained by command or by printer ...

GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE- the input is provided to the computer through the other input devices like mouse,joystick etc
the input is provided either by command or by the just clicking the mouse on the particular icon ...

example for graphical user interface is windows,Macintosh etc ...
