I have a laptop which is reaching its end... however, it has 2 partitions. The laptop is vista and i want to always have access to this copy of vista as it has programs and files on that i dont want to change or move. If i install win7 on a 2nd partition after windows vista will it install as a dual boot?

IE. i have the following setup

C: Vista
D: Empty

if i install win7 on D will i be able to boot to vista in C???

Many Thanks in advance...

Keep in mind that part of your Win7 install still resides on C:\ ..... if C:\ croaks, you can't boot to D:\

I see no logical reason to run Vista and 7. 7 is based on Vista.
