I usually carry a live Linux USB Flashdrive with me most of the time encase I need to boot into Linux or fix a broken installation.

Edit: I also updated the wiki page with the basic installation steps for the RC.

Because it is a different operating system. I have a different computer id for both my Windows and Linux installations, in wine or if I use a virtual machine on my own hardware.

because it calculates it based off of hardware and other registry sources.

Ok I get it, because wine is emulating the windows stuff. Gotcha

Because most new Graal Linux users are also new to Linux I have made a quick video on how to install the Remote Control via the Terminal (best viewed in 720/1080p).

Nobody wants to 'have' Linux.

Great post, sure helped me install RC on Loonix!

(OT: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkLtXfsPqVQ)

EDIT: No hacking, it's not American!

When I installed Loonix I did like the OT, and I installed it off a USB drive. However, on Arch you'll probably end up having to install the gnome shell via the terminal which can be painful. Not to mention the fact that there will be numerous drivers to update. However, it is possible.

The best way is to install Ubuntu/Mint are off a USB drive, though (regardless of what distro you install). Comparing Linux distros is like comparing apples to oranges.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...n/FromUSBStick

Also you can shrink the volume of your main drive to make some space for your dual boot as well. (Win 7 - > Computer - > Manage - > Shrink Volume). If you want to remove it afterwards just use Gparted to uninstall the distro and allocate that space back to your main drive. (Don't delete the partition!)
