Where did you install 7?

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to Not able to install dual- ...

You should install the first OS to the Root of the Boot Drive and the second OS to either another drive or another Partition on the Boot Drive.

If you install the Second OS to the Root of the Boot Drive the Boot Files for the first OS are overwritten when you install the second OS.

Though from memory Red Hat 6 is very old wouldn't you want to try something much newer like Fedora 15 which is the current development of the Open Source version of Red Hat?

VMWare workstation may be a better option

It's not cheap, but it works.

The simplest and most reliable way to run multiple OS on one PC is to swap hard drives. The second most reliable method is to run each OS in a virtual machine, which is much easier.

The snapshot feature of VMware is invaluable, too. While Windows system restore works most of the time, VMware snapshots work much more reliably. And of course snapshots don't care what OS is on the VM or what just goes back.
