Why fight with physical hardware limitations?

Install Virtualbox (it's free) and create as many bootable virtuals as you want, each reachable without a physical hard-on-the-hardware re-boot. And from my experience the actual boot times of the virtuals are only about 50% of physical boot time for the same OS on the same hardware, ignoring BIOS initialization. Plus you can archive a copy of the vdi file for a near instant 're-install'.
