Re: [PLUG] Any Dual Boot Advice

You should always install windows before linux.

The reason for this is that when you install windows, it overwrites your MBR, which prevents any other OS's from booting (unless they're windows based).  If you install windows first and then linux second (pretty much regardless of distro), the installer will recognize that it's not the only OS on the system.  It will then install itself in such a way that you can dual-boot.
