How many systems can be installed on PC?

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Right now on my laptop there is Windows 8 and Linux Ubuntu dual booted. I'm just curious. I want to know is there any limitation for having more than certain number of operating systems. Is there maybe a possibility to damage something if more OS-es are installed?

How many systems can be installed on PC?


Hi Pamela,

Installing multiple operating systems on a computer has some drawbacks, however. Each operating system uses disk space, and compatibility issues (especially between file systems) can be complex. Also, you cannot use dynamic disks with certain operating systems. Only Windows 2000, Windows XP Professional, and Windows Vista can access a dynamic disk.
Converting a basic disk to a dynamic disk that contains multiple installations of Windows Vista, Windows XP Professional, or Windows 2000 can cause startup problems.
