hello,

i am using xp and win7 in dual boot...
i wan to install vista sp2....
so what should i do?

because vista is lower than win7, hence it will overwrite the MBR....

should i directly boot with vista dvd and install......?? :??:

Well my first question is why do you need Vista? but moving on to your question... I would remove your hard drives with xp and 7 and install vista on a different drive( the only one connected) after install is complete hook up the other drives and use your BIOS to select the boot system.

Agree with anonymous. If you have XP and Win7, why do you need Vista?
