In 2010, I installed XBMCLive 10.1 Dharma (Standalone) into my Acer Revo running as dual boot with Windows 7 Ultimate. That version of XBMCLive ( running perfectly with about 100+ songs, 100+ movies and tv shows in my external HDD, and over 50+ internet streaming channels.

My Acer Revo setting, I spare 25GB for XBMCLive. Installed it from SDCard 4GB, it dual boot with Windows7. Then when it start, it automatic boot into XBMC with 10seconds. I can start watching movie after about 20sec cool boot.
