Since i bought an eee-pc, i am again confronted with XP.
Today i exchanged the original 16GB ssd, for a faster 64GB runcore ssd.
Now i am able to dual or triple boot on a bigger drive.
(sd card does not realy perform)
As this os (xp) and i do not realy get along, i used Norton ghost to be
able to backup my fully upgraded and tuned XP, to be able to restore the
image without any fuss.
The whole operation, complete with installing the xp-backup image, took
me little less than half an hour.
The case is that Ghost does not support bootloaders, but performs great.
1) Is there a way to easily disable/enable grub?
As XP is the first on the drive, it would not be difficult to boot when
the original mbr is reinstalled, as i allready tried that... (it is in
the boot dir, and not in /var/lib/yast2/backup-boot_section/mbr, by the
way, as in the release notes from 11.1 is stated...)
2) Where should grub be installed for the least trouble?
And in case XP would stop booting, which can have many causes, but
mostly a virus, i will have to reinstall the original mbr, and restore
After that use an installation dvd/cd, to reinstall grub, or something
thnx for a useble answer..
