I have an Acer Aspire 1430 1.6mhz AMD small form tower...been trying to run Linux along side Win 7. No luck. Can you have a separate HDD loaded w/Linux and interchange it w/the Win 7 HDD to avoid the dual-boot issues? Best Regards-Larry-C

Yes. I do that. Most BIOS's allow you to choose which disk to boot to if you have more than one. Avoids OS boot managers.
