I'm running XP Pro and Vista Ultimate 64 on separate partitions of a single 500GB hard drive. Have enough Unallocated space to create a third partition on which I would like to install Windows 7. In the face of many MS recommended precautions about backing up, etc., is there any reason why Windows 7 should not install on a third partition without in any way affecting the other two partitions?

No more or less than any other OS on a separate partition...

You could also download the free Virtual PC from microsoft and install it that way.
