9. Boot-Up Hacks > Introduction: Hacks #85-94

Introduction: Hacks #85-94

Setting up your PC to be able to boot the operating system of your choice is a great way to conserve space and energy and is of great benefit to those who like to play games that must run under DOS or Windows 9x (and this chapter has a couple of hacks on improving the performance of these operating systems).

With a bit of preplanning and the right software, you can hack your PC to have multiple operating system personalities, including any operating system from DOS to Linux, as well as any and multiple versions of Windows. There is a variety of options for booting different operating systems on the same PC, with or without separate hard drives or partitions. Multibooting is a great solution for those who love DOS-based games that don’t work at all under NT, Linux, or 2000 and work only marginally well under XP. You can keep a Windows 98 or Me installation around just for running those games.
