How to dual boot Windows with Jolicloud?

I have seen several comments about dual boot issue after installing Jolicloud operating system with windows OS. The reason for this problem is that when install Jolicloud using Wubi Installer, rather than the traditional dual-boot method, this installs the entireJolicloud operating system inside a folder called “jolicloud” within your Windows root or C: drive.

It modifying the Windows boot.ini file so that there is an extra entry that boots into Jolicloud, using the files within the C:jolicloud folder. Not only did it add this extra entry, but it also made it the default selection. Since it did not have any “timeout” option, it was immediately booting into Jolicloud, means it is not allowing you or not giving enough time to choose Windows XP.

You can fix this problem my editing your windows boot.ini file.

  • Step 1: Make a backup copy of the boot.ini file, and call it something like boot.ini.bak
  • Step 2: Add timeout=30 in the boot.ini file so that it looks like this:

[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional Edition" /fastdetect
C:wubildr.mbr = "Jolicloud"

This will allow you 30 seconds to choose whether you want to boot into Windows XP or Jolicloud.

If you wish to remove Jolicloud completely, remove it via the Add/Remove Software tool in the Control Panel under Windows XP. And you can change the default OS selection to Windows or Jolicloud.
