When the instalation is completed, you will have a menu at boot time to choose Vista or W7. | Report abuse dunklegend November 16, 2009 6:53:50 PM 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. | Report abuse seerwan November 16, 2009 6:57:18 PM its only till i borrow an External drive to copy then paste all of my files... my external HDD was stolen 2 weeks ago... | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Windows 7>Install Vista on one Hard Drive, Windows 7 on Hard Drive 2> Related ressources: ForumReplacing sata hard drive with vista to another one with windows 7 ForumReplace hard drive and install windows 7 ForumCan I Install a Windows 7 Hard Drive ForumProblem installing Windows 7 hard drive in Vista machine ForumJust installed windows 7 , can't access 2 nd hard drive ForumTrying to install windows 7 rc on third hard drive ForumInstalled new hard drive and cannot install windows ForumConfused noob with core i 7 build and hard drive problems with Vista ForumReplacing hard drive and upgrading from vista to win 7 ForumOne hard drive running windows getting ssd ForumMy hard drive crashed and I am replacing it with a new one .
