Hello everyone,

I wanted to first just say that I am very new to the android community and this is my first experience as I have been an apple user forever. My end goal is to be able to dual boot android with either windows, or a version of Linux. I am wanting to install the tablet in the dash of my car and run a program call "rom raider" so that I log real time data and tune my car at will. I have already unlocked and rooted the device, which was a learning experience in itself. I am just needing some direction as to which would be more stable to dual boot (windows/Linux). How exactly this process works. An anything else that I might need to know while I continue t try my hand at this project. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

You'll be able to use MultiROM to boot to Ubuntu, but I'm not aware of any ported Windows OS.

Of course this requires Unlocking, Rooting, and installation of a MultiROM kernel.

Have fun, Read,Read,Read before you start.

Thanks for that information. Do you have any suggestions on where I could start? I have been looking in the LinuxonAndroid Project, but being a new user the instructions are a little confusing.
