DualBoot detection

Is there a script to detect dualboots before launching the installation of EEPC? We have to deploy EEPC on 10 000+ computers so we want to be sure to not affect any computers with dualboot ( they'll be excluded until more investigation ).

RE: DualBoot detection

dual boot what and what? do you mean like when you install two copies of Windows and get to select from the f8 menu, or do you mean Windows/Linux using GRUB as a boot loader?

RE: DualBoot detection

We want to detect all the differents possibilities of Multi boot. All computers supposed to have Win XP but some users have installed another XP, Win7, linux... We will script it but if it's already done somewhere, i'm curious to see what they have made. ( We'll need to extract the info from the MBR, boot.ini... ) .

RE: DualBoot detection

shouldn't be too hard, though getting at the MBR from within Windows could be tricky - I would use EEPCCheck as a starting point, it already knows how to check for a whole bunch of other stuff, plus it knows how block a client from activation as well.
