Re: [NTO] Dual OS installation
- Hello and thanks to all the 'replyers'
I am so sorry I forgot to mention in my question that the partitions on the
disk are FAT32,
and one partition is totaly empty.
I am thinking to try the VMWare option - it sounds interesting (I never
tried it) - the final decision is what my grandson will like.
When it's done I will let you know.
So again thanks to all of you
and a Happy New Year.
PS. Now I have some problem with MY computer, but this for another post.
