Is it possible to create an XP/Win7 dual boot without loosing your recovery partition? From what i can tell, the dual boot function needs too access a part of your MBR that may be used by the recovery software? Is it one or the other?
Yes. I installed win7 on diffrent drive than my XP (c:), and my XP recovery partition is still there.
The way to install an OS and boot it without changing the MBR would be to use the existing Windows XP boot loader to chain boot Windows 7 (or another operating system).
To do this though Windows 7 would have to have an install option allowing you to install it’s boot loader to its own partition rather than the boot sector.
so basically when you create a dual boot scenario that OS creates a new MBR that overwrites the OEM samsung bootloader?
which means F4 recovery (and possibly recovery via XP – which needs a boot into the recovery partition) will no longer work?
this thread shows a way of booting the recovery partition via Grub.
My question though is can you run the Samsung Backup app in XP if you’ve got a dual-boot set up? Reason I ask is because it boots into a special boot OS to do the backup (the recovery partition?). Would you lose that?
