    Before i install OSx86, I'm gonna make a Vista recovery disc just in case anything goes wrong.
    Now, i searched for a while and found this and was wondering if anyone could tell me if this would do the trick in recovering my laptop in case anything happens with OSx86.

    ya but u cant use that one in the link cause thats to restore vista incase u got a bug or something. u need to download a full copy of vista and burn it to a disc so its bootable. then if u got problems do teh same thing u did to get oXS86 but enter teh prouduct key on teh bottom of the comp when prompted

    it will give u a fresh install of vista if u dont like OSX86. for teh link u provided it will only work if u get vista installed. but by teh time u choose to switch back u won't have vista installed u'll have OSX86

    you'll want a full ISO image burned to a bootable DVD... just google it and research a bit.. it's easy to pick up on

    EDIT: dual boot is fine.. you'll need to partition your harddisk though

    EDIT EDIT: Kevin can't he just make a restore point and save it to something external incase he wants to revert??
