Run Windows and Linux processes at the same time


Dear forummembers,
I was wondering if it was possible to continue some of your linux (backtrack 5) processes while actively using windows (7) and vice versa?

Thanks in advance!

You can only run more than one OS simultaneously if you use some kind of virtualization. So if you install a virtual machine in Backtrack and install 7 into a VM, then yes, you can do that. The only other way that would come to my mind is to install Windows programs with Wine in Linux.

You can use a virtual machine, like VirtualBox or VMWare to run one OS inside the other. Also, you mean "wondering".

Changed the spelling error. Forgive me for my spelling mistakes, English is not my native language.
Does that VirtualBox runs one OS into another or does it run processes of the other while running the other? I just need one proces to be running since I want to launch a bruteforce attack (on my own systems as security check) with BT5.

Is using a Virtual Box required advanced knowledge?

Thanks in advance

It doesn't require any kind of advanced knowledge.

It runs the entire OS. Keep in mind that a brute force attack by definition always will be succesfull.
