  • United States NoahPlotkin

    NoahPlotkin

    well....i would suggest you start adding more than 30 os's after i break the record again....

  • United States NoahPlotkin

    NoahPlotkin

    also...i noticied that he doesn't have the video of the 5 OS's running its just a video of some person eating 125 cookies...not the 5 OS's....

      Good catch; that seems to have gotten mixed up in the change!

    • United States NoahPlotkin

      NoahPlotkin

      thanks...i see that video on every computer record(folder on desktop....etc)

  • United States NoahPlotkin

    NoahPlotkin

    also would running 2 windows 7 OS's count as being 2 OS's running???? (i.e currently installed and virtualbox????)

  • United States NoahPlotkin

    NoahPlotkin

    also my computer has

    16GB of RAM

    Intel atom i3 processor(quad core)

    Nvidia Geforce GT 630 Gaming Graphics card

    more than 5 hard-drives 1)160GB 2)1TB 3)1TB 4)80GB 5)250GB 6)and 2 others that i don't use

    Dual Screens for multi-tasking...(is it allowed to have multi-screens up and running IE.. virtual box on one and the other for recording the video???

  • United States NoahPlotkin

    NoahPlotkin

    List of OS's I have...

    DOS. 6.22 WINDOWS 3.1 WINDOWS 95 WINDOWS 98 WINDOWS ME WINDOWS VISTA WINDOWS XP WINDOWS 8 PRO WINDOWS 7 AND FINALLY WINDOWS SERVER 2012

    does those operating systems follow the rules???

    Watch out guys. I have 32Gb ram and lots of ISOs.

    • United States NoahPlotkin

      NoahPlotkin

      yes and what current OS are you running on your computer to run these ISO's???? also do you have a gaming computer/server computer that can use 32GB???? aslo depends on what CPU you have installed..... if you want to beat the record i would get a quad core processor to beat my record...which i will break in a couple of hours....

    • United States NoahPlotkin

      NoahPlotkin

      this record has 5 OS's running i counted 10 that i will use to beat this record...

  • United States Robert Rickett

    I have a question. If I run Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Ubuntu Linux, Kali, and Fedora from a virtual program like virtualbox as he did, will it be valid and break the record?

    • United States Jenn Wark

      Jenn Wark

      Good to see someone looking at these old categories! Since VirtualBox is "running" the OS, then it would be valid. The only thing specifically prohibited here, for obvious reasons, is a remote connection.

    btw I only have 2gb ram installed :)

    • United States NoahPlotkin

      NoahPlotkin

      to eun more i sugest more than 4gb to run more than 3 OS's.....i had that problem it slowed my computer down after i was running windows xp/7/ windows 8 pro at the same time

    • United States NoahPlotkin

      NoahPlotkin

    I really like that "intellectuals" are getting records into the URDB, I like it when there's a balance of athletic/mental records being achieved - kudos to your effort! :)

  • United States Dan Leatherman

    Dan Leatherman

    Darryl, that is correct. Soon I will have 3 and be able to beat my own record.

  • Canada Darryl Learie

    Darryl Learie

    I can see how you can have 2 o/s on a pc provided a locked partition, but how would a person run them at once - virtual machines?

  • United States Dan Leatherman

    Dan Leatherman

    Good observation Dan, Video evidence to be submitted.

    How do we know this isn't just two separate computers placed next to each other?
