Sorry if this is the wrong board to ask this, but I wasn't quite sure where to put it.
Is it possible to use VMWare to install an OS that you can boot up on when you do an "actual" reboot on the computer instead of using VMWare to start it up?

If you want to be able to boot directly in the OS it has to be installed. Create a second partition for the OS you want to use, install the OS to that partition and create a dual-boot (or use a boot manager like Lilo or Grub if the two OS's don't use the same boot loader). Make some research before you install since installing another OS on another partition of the same hard drive will overwrite the boot sectors of the previous OS.

What operating systems are you talking about ?

Couldn't you export/import your registry using an external hard drive or usb drive?

Then it's an illegal operating system and we can't help you with that here on TSF. Check the forum rules.
