Windows 7 Dual Boot works without Hardware Assisted Virtualization (HAV)

I received a question about one of my old screen casts, and I thought I should share it, and the answer, with you:


I have viewed you video on dual boot xp and win 7 beta. My question is will the same procedure work with xp and the newly released windows 7? I had my computer refurbished and to my dismay, it does not support HAV. So, I am wondering if the procedure you have in your video will work.

Thanks, Tony

This answer is, yes! Dual Boot in Windows 7 RTM works just like it did in the Beta and it does not require Hardware Assisted Virtualization (HAV) since neither Operating System is running in a Virtual Machine.

Until next time,
