Red face Solved virtualizing Windows and fedora on a Ubuntu host

I solved thre problem with virtual Machine Open Source edition, as for the second port of you're query I don't have the found necerrt to purchase the Hardware needed to parallel boot all of the aforementioned operating systems which makes virtualization the most economical alternative to the over 450 dollar price tag of Buying multiple meaning (Tw0) 500GB hard Drives and a raid controller card. Not to mention I prefer Ubuntu as a host operating system over Fedora or either version of windows mentioned.

I though 720 GB total space should be enough to use it for more then two OS.
But you are right, with a vm you will have less work.
