I am trying to Quadboot Vista, XP, Linux, and OSomething or other on my laptop. I tried Acronis Disk Director Suite, and used the OS selector, and it can't see Vista. Any suggestions?

Don't use Vista. There probably is no software that can recoginze Vista because it's so picky on its compatibility with anything.

But you don't run this in Vista, therefore Vista can't be picky with it. I was just wondering what multiboot loader supported Vista. Any?

It will be very disappointing if none of you guys have an answer... :deal:

No, but it can be picky with Vista. Unless the software specifically supports Vista, it's unlikely it will work.

have you tried using the Linux GRUB loader? Thats what I use on my box, its always worked flawlessly for me. (Of course, I am only tri booting not quad and I won't touch Vista with a VERY long barge pole)

Vista shouldn't be different in booting to any other OS, all the boot loader does is execute the second stage of the booting process so all you should need to do is point your boot manager to the partition Vista is installed on.
