Install Vista on one Hard Drive, Windows 7 on Hard Drive 2
Nov 16, 2009, 2:51 PM
Dear Tom's ppls,
I have Vista installed on my Hard Drive, 250 GB.
But i recently purchased a 2nd Hard Drive, 500 GB, and i want to install Windows 7 on it.
Is that possible, to have both separately?

Yes, boot the W7 dvd, select custom instalation and select the new drive to install on. When the instalation is completed, you will have a menu at boot time to choose Vista or W7.

Vista and Windows 7 are basically the same (only windows 7 a little bit better), why would you want to have it in dual boot?
You should do a backup of your important files and work with windows 7.
