"Fast-switching" between Mint and Windows?

Postby nbeerbower » Sat Dec 13, 2008 3:34 pm

Hello,

I'm currently using GRUB to manage my dual boots of Linux Mint and Windows XP. I was wondering if there was a program that allowed me to easily reboot into Windows from Linux and vice-versa.

Thanks,
nbeerbower

nbeerbower,

The only way right off hand I can think of would be to run XP as a virtual machine, in VirtualBox for example.
