I am currently downloading Windows Home Server Release Candidate for testing. Has anyone tried installing this along side a Vista installation. I just want to try it out on one of my Vista PC's before dedicating a machine to it, so I will need to be able to boot both OS's.

I dont want to have to reinstall Vista.

Any thoughts?

Never tried that combination but I just managed to mangle my vista partition. Moral of the story: try it on a machine with a recovery partition. Makes 'reinstallation' a snap.

Edit: ...and it seems you don't actually *want* to dual boot. Why not just try it on a VMWare image?
