Dual booting can be tricky at times and obviously it’s very useful for IT pros like me. I still remember, 10 years back, we used to struggle a lot to get dual booting done with Windows 98 and Linux. Now the process is somewhat straight forward. Today, I’ve noticed a nice post from Blain Barton on dual boot. His post provides step by step guide to dual boot Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012.

4. Dual Booting off a USB thumb drive with a newly created .VHD
