Double Boot

Hi, not sure if I'm asking this in the correct section but...

I only have 1 disk on my computer, 2 partitions, one with Windows 7 64-bits and another one with Windows Vista 32-bits.

On my Windows 7 I have McAfee, but I have no idea what to do on my Windows Vista.

I've always heard having 2 antivirus in one PC is a big NO-NO, but considering the fact that I'm installing in a different partition, with a different Operating System, would it be ok?

Again sorry if this is the wrong section.

It sounds like you have set your system to boot to W7 OR to Vista. You have installed an anti-virus program to W7. And you want to install an anti-virus program into your Vista-based system. You can and should. Boot into Vista and install the program.

You don't want to install two anti-virus programs into one operating system because they will often conflict and cause problems or conflicts in the operating system.
