I would really like to utilize a 2-TB EARS Drive in a Multi Boot environment, i.e.:
Partition #-1 Windows XP-Pro
Partition #-2 Windows Vista Ultimate
Partition #-3 Windows 7
With what I have read on the WEB so far, “it could be iffie”.
I believe I would first have to use the Acronis Alignment Tool and “then” Partition with XP-Pro.
I would then use Acronis to “clone” from the “old” XP-Pro Drive to Partition #-1 on the “new” Drive.
I would then use Acronis to “clone” from the “old” Vista Drive to Partition #-2 on the “new” Drive.
I would then use Acronis to “clone” from the “old” 7 Drive to Partition #-3 on the “new” Drive.
My concern is the “unknowns” associated with the new EARS Technology.
I’d like to do it right the first time.
Your feedback will be greatly appreciated.
FYI - WD will not offer Installation Assistance in a Multi Boot Environment.
