A couple years ago I was using the business center of an Embassy Suites hotel. They had Apple computers with a dual login screen where I could choose to login to Windows or OSX. This was not a dual boot setup. It was choose at login. I have not been able to find a system that does this.

Do you know of such a system that makes this possible? Again, this is for a dual login, not a dual boot configuration.

  • What user name and password did it ask for?

  • If I recall correctly, it was more about how much money you paid to get minutes on the computer not a username and password. It was like 20 bucks for 10 minutes or something ridiculous like that. The reason I ask about this at all is because I'm trying to decide how to best equip an Apple computer lab for multi purpose computing.

I suspect it was a dual boot set up. This can be done via refit and would show a screen like this

You then get taken to the Windows or OS X login - but for both of these you can make this auto login so the process does not stop here and you go in as a user. In OS X probably as the guest user and I think this can be done on windows as well

  • This sounds more like it. Maybe it was a dual boot and the login step as you describe it sounds like what I saw.

  • At that screen, if you were to select Windows, you would see the entire boot process and 'starting windows' screen etc... right?

It's not possible unless Parallels Coherence is used. Parallels runs Windows Apps in Mac. Find out more here -- http://kb.parallels.com/en/4670

  • The environment as I witnessed it segregated the operating systems. It was not Parallels.

I found the exact system. It was enabled by Boot Runner.
