I'm new on this forum, so please be mercyfull
I'm just wondering if it will be possible to fast switch between operating systems in following way:
Assume, that we're using laptop with 2 operating systems. On first partition we have WinXP, next partition is Linux (as swap) and additionally we have third partition with filesystem which can be easily accesed from both WinXP and Linux.
Now, assume that we're currently using linux. We're suspending system to file. This file is located on our third partition. We restarting machine. Now, we need some app operating from MBR. This app is checking our third partition and if we have more than one suspend file it asks us which of those files we want to load. When we choose, it loads desired OS.
This approach is more complicated than use of some virtual PC software but it has one big advantage - it doesn't share a phisical memory between two simultaneously running systems.
This short description is a big simplification. I'm aware that it may be difficult to implement/configure. But I'm hardly know if it can be done at all.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
