    Windows Server 2008 (WS2008) and WS2008 dual boot problem


    Hi all,

    not sure if this is the right place. Sorry if It is not.

    I have a drive on which I installed two version of the same WS2008. The way I installed them is the following:
    - create an image of the original drive
    - clone the original drive to a new one (just for safety)
    - install a new WS2008 on the clone drive
    - restore image of the original drive on the second partition

    I can boot from boot partitions and they seem to working fine, however if I make a new file on one OS I can see the same file on the other OS. If I remove an app on one OS it will scramble the same app on the other OS.

    I am not sure if the restore option scrambled the file system.

    So in both cases you probably boot the same instance. Use EasyBCD to add second installation into bootmenu.
