Pretty intriguing as you can then take that VHD to other systems and run it.
I'm having custom-build shop do PC with three hard disk drives. HDD#1 dedicated Linux Mint 10;HDD#2 for XP Pro+BrowserLinux on partition; HDD#3 will be SATA mobile-rack to trial PC-BSD, FortressLinux, and various other OSs (each on it own dedicated hard disk) to swap in and out.
What options do I have for control of boot sequence...other than BIOS?
Regret I'm looking for multi-boot managers (or similar stuff). I'm a newbie and emulators, virtualization,etc. looks too complex for me. I figure the first year will go to teaching myself Linux Mint, & second year to learning PC-BSD. Maybe after that I'll have time to look into virtualization stuff, but cannot wait that long to sort the boot sequence problem. Also, from what I read in your link ("native VHD support is supported only by Windows 7"), I'm not sure this is even feasible, as XP Pro is the only Windows OS I will ever have.
