In short, even I would not attempt to create my own dual boot. I let the distro take care of it. Suse 9.1 does this with ease.
Can you share what distro and boot manager that failed for you.
Is there any reason I can not create a dual boot system with an 64bit version of Linux and a 32 bit version of Windows using an AMD 64 processor?
Thanks for your help.
PS. I plan on doing this with an HP laptop computer.
