I just got my hands on the new windows 7 professional. I got it for free from the universitys, where I am currently studying, server .

I am planning to install both on my computer, since I still don't trust 7 (you know...usual hardware drivers and currently own programs problems with new operating systems)
My plan is to make a new partition (reducing one of the current partitions) using vista's built in function and install windows 7 in the new partition.

Hmmmm...I wanna know how you think about this idea, before really doing it...so..please tell me your opinions..please also share your problems, if you have any regarding to my plan..

Thank you in advance...











Note : I wanna buy a new hdd...like I've written in other section on this forum...but not for this computer...it is meant for my HTPC..so...gonna stick with my current HDD.

Best solution

I've been using both (Vista 64 since release, and Win 7 since the Beta became available on Technet), and IMHO: As long as you have a reasonably current system that runs Vista, then you have nothing to worry about running Win 7.
