Install 2 operating systems in a virtual server
#1
Hello
Can I install two different operating systems on a virtual server? For example, Linux Debian and Windows 8.1.
There will be no problem with ports?

I don't think so, But maybe i'm wrong. I'm not good at VPS management so wait for the "Tect consultant" reply. @Hidden Refuge sorry sir i bothered you but can you answer this question because now i'm also wondering if it possible. But as far as i know only KVM visualization can host a windows server and about the linux maybe we can install in partition, Probably i'm wrong.
Best regards,
Support Team of Post4VPS.

@hamed  No it is not possible to have two OS on one VPS.  Also be careful with trying to be too experimental on a new VPS when you're a new user.  Take your time to get comfortable with the VPS first, check the monitor, and then push a little further if you want to be creative.  The sponsor of VPS 1 is strict with abuse of resources, so it's important that you be in control of the VPS first before you start to experiment with it and know what the limits of the resources are.

That can't be!
Unless you want to use an emulator like HyperVM / Qemu
But as you know! That will burden your VPS

You do not need to actually install 2 operating systems. You should give Wine a try.

Wine was like a toy at the beginning and contained lots of bugs.

But now its version 4 is much improved and can run many Windows 8.1 applications stably on Linux Debian.
Special thanks to VPSVortex for a great KVM VPS.

What i can say about having two different operating system on a VPS. thats not possible at all. as deanhits said be carefull and don't try, it will cause a lot of issues in your vps. like shutdowing without reason, so you should avoid such a thing.
Thanks to Post4VPS and Host4Fun for my amazing VPS 1

I have been very busy the last one or two weeks due to my final exam for my IT specialist diploma. During that time I have visited the site without logging in when I had time, though. I have seen this thread but had no chance to reply as it was closed rather quickly and I had more important preparations to do. Well, luckly the exam is over now.

A little something I wanted to add to the topic as additional information or maybe also as an answer to the question in the thread can be found below.

The easy way:
If the VPS that the user has is a) based on KVM and b) the user has access to the control panel with c) the ability to mount a ISO, they can install two or more operating systems (depending on the available disk space) as easy as it is possible on a normal computer or server. Through the installer the user can partition the HDD and leave space for a second or third operating system. First Windows and then Linux (to avoid the bootloader brick that Windows will cause when it is installed after Linux). Of course you cannot boot into both operating systems at once. You can only use one at the same time and would need to reboot the VPS and boot into the other one through the boot manager/loader when you want to change OSs. This way the network of the VPS will have no conflicts and there won't be any other conflicting issues (well, unless you break the partitions by messing around with them).


The hard way:
If the user wants to run two or more operating systems at the same time: the solution is virtualization inside virtualization. You can install KVM inside KVM (or other virtualization technologies) and create further VMs inside your VPS. In this case you will have conflicts with the network as you mostly have only a single IPv4 IP address. You would have to setup a complex NAT network on the VPS and forward ports to the VMs if you want host applications and such things. This is absolutely nothing for beginners and people who lack advanced knowledge about Linux, its firewalls and networking (NAT, port forwarding, routing). And remember that in most cases the providers will not allow such experiments. The performance won't be a dream either. This method has no real plus points unless you install OpenVZ inside the KVM container (this will have zero impact on performance as OpenVZ containers are software isolated containers without any real virtualization).
