I can't get Virtual Box working on my HP Slate 500 (plus it would be to laggy) so I want to attempt a dual boot, only problem is I don't have enough room to do that. The HP Slate 500 has an SD card port and I have a 32 GB card, can I boot 8 from that card somehow?

It all really depends if the BIOS supports that type of removable media as a boot device. chances are it might, but in the event it doesn't, I would suggest buying a cheap USB drive and write the image to that, then boot with it and see where that takes you. I have seen videos of people running it on the Slate, but nothing on how to install it.

I imagine that would be if you ran it as the sole bootable operating system on the device.
But as you said, see how it goes (even though there is a lot of dust in this thread). :p
