Windows® Dual Boot Manager
Read on to know about Windows Dual Boot Manager and features of Smart Boot Manager.
A computer system in which two operating systems are installed on the same hard drive is known as a Dual Boot System. Dual boot system allows either operating system to be loaded and is given control over the other. When the computer is turned on, you may get a menu from the boot manager program. This menu allows you to choose the operating system that you wish to use. A boot manager replaces the original Master Boot Record (MBR) on its own and here the boot manager program loads instead of an operating system. Some popular boot manager programs include System Commander, and Partition Magic. Common combinations of operating systems used on dual boot systems are Linux and Windows NT and Windows 98 with one install of Windows being in a different language. Since more than two operating systems can be installed on a computer, you can also call it as a multi-boot system.
