So many articles we see on the net like 'How to make dual boot Windows and Linux'. Yes it is hard, an issue something for experts or challengers. But as for the Puppy Linux, it is so easy and safe. You need not re-construct your hard disk drives or new drives.

Hi, all!
I made a small article on 'How to install Puppy on Windows PC',
or in another words, 'How to boot off Puppy from Windows pre-installed hard disk drive'.
Take a look and your feed back is welcome.

As you know, Puppy can install frugally on the Windows partitions.
But the problem was how to boot it up.
Now it is easy thanks to the grub4dos.

I propose the set of 3 tools as the key components.
  • Grub4DosConfig ... to make enable booting off from NTFS
  • Winfonts ... to avoid to make swap partitions
  • Frugal Installer ... to avoid newcomers be confused with the complex 'Universal' installer

Your opinion and suggestion is welcome.
Enjoy Puppy!

Bruce wonders what is 'the special MBR made by the manufacturer'..
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=471616#471616

Me too suspect whether they really exist.
I guess the MBR may be common but some special install style of Windows such as the partition layout. I don't know because i have not such a PC.

One of the keywords is 'Disk-to-Disk Recovery'.
Another is 'Host protected area'.
The latter seems a matter of BIOS(not MBR).

EDIT: Found an article:
