Possible Ways To Run Multiple Operating Systems On A Single Computer


You have two options for installing multiple operating systems in a PC

1. In a Virtual Drive

2. On your hard disk directly.

Hard Disk Directly

You can install multiple operating systems in your PC by installing it in the hard disk directly. You only want to create a separate partition or you can install it in your local drive. At the booting time you will get the OS selection window. You can install Windows 8 and Windows 7 and Linux parallel in your PC.

On Virtual Drive

Next method is installing it in a virtual drive. For this you want to open your main OS and run the virtual drive software. Windows 8.1 comes with Hyper V, which will function for virtualizing the same machine. Virtual drive means a drive inside your main drive. Hyper-v enables you to run more than one operating system inside your own system.
