Multiboot configuration

  1. following situation:
    I have WindowsXP and Windows2003 installed on one partition using the
    multiboot menu.
    Both OutOfTheBox installations (xp in \windows, windows2003 in \W2k3)
    After I installed the IE7 beta in WindowsXP my Internet Explorer6 in
    Windows2003 was broken.
    It fired some messageboxes about some missing DLLs and stuff.

    Of course, it happend because the Application-Directory is shared by both
    Personally I think its a bad way and Microsoft should provide support for
    side by side Operating System Installations.

    Glad, that the removal of the IE7 restored the functionality.
    Beside that, I love the IE7 and can't wait to install Windows Vista (of
    course side by side) ;)
