I am not sure if this is the correct forum for this, but I am currently working with an HPC machine for business use and it is currently running Ubuntu 11.04 (I have yet to update due to software incompatibilities).
Anyways, some of the users would prefer to be working within a Windows environment and other in a Linux environment. I found that my best solution would be to dual-boot Windows and Ubuntu, but when looking further into that process, I found that it's not the easiest task as Windows likes to overwrite the Linux boot manager making the machine incapable of starting Ubuntu.
I currently have the necessary Windows software in hand (Windows HPC Server 2008 SP3), but I am a little weary about attempting an install without knowing the exact steps to take in order to avoid losing Ubuntu.
So there lies my question, would anyone mind stepping me through the process of dual-booting Windows (preferably HPC Server 2008, but I'm sure they're all similar) and Linux while keeping both boot managers in tact? In the end I'd like to be prompted which OS to boot when starting the HPC.
Thank you very much!
