    Can the OSX partition see the Windows partition?
    Maybe a stupid question, but that's what this forum is for, right?

    If I setup a dual boot OSX/Vista on a Macbook, can one partition see the other?

    I have a dual boot Linux/Vista desktop at home, and Linux can see the Windows partition just fine. (Not the other way around though).

    Was just curious.

    Yes, OS X can read NTFS partitions, but not the other way around. Also, OS X has only read support (not read/write).

    If you want an easy way to see both partitions with full read/write support both ways, check into Paragon NTFS for Mac.
