Memory for Ubuntu - RUnning VM (Vista) for gaming - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
I am going to have to get to work on this.

I ran the os-prober and it seemed to only detect linux. I ran the grub update and restarted but it still boots right into Ubuntu. My BIOS has a drive selector and I can set the order as well. So even if the preferred method doesnt work then I can just go back to doing it that way. For some reason I think the Windows hdd is just crappy and should probably be replaced.

BTW - I already went the lazy route of installing Steam and Linux only games smile.gif My motivation for installing Windows is that all of the games on Linux sucks and I got three free games when I purchased my video card.

I figured that since the MSI Afterburner software appeared to give me control over the card that I would have no problem gaming in the VM. I am still going to give it a shot and see what happens. Most likely it will freeze, crap out, or have poor fps.

I'll report back as I start to finish certain steps. Thanks for your help. Im impressed to see how involved everyone is on the forums here. Other sites' forums are like ghost towns when you try to ask specific questions. So I really appreciate it.

@ Shrak - You know, the first time I saw your response I did not see the "Play on Linux" link with instructions. I am going to give that a whirl now and then later today I am going to partition the HDD and install Windows properly as a dual boot and then have the majority of my hdd for shared storage. That really is the best possible solution.
