How can I dual boot two copies of Windows 7?

I have a new system and would like to dual boot two copies of Windows 7 (one for infrequently used applications).

Under XP, I easily achieved this using Partition Magic and its boot manager PQBoot, but I don't think PM can help me now.

Can anyone suggest an easy way for a user of average skill to achive my objective?

    Hi Donald,

    You will need to have two separate copies of Windows 7 with separate product keys in order to do this. Take a look at this thread on dual booting two copies of Windows 7 - http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/w7itproinstall/thread/c173b8ee-bac3-45c8-95ae-112c83765ba3

    Good Luck!

  2. Hello Donald,

    It comes down to two things: TWO SEPERATE Windows KEYS. You will need seperate keys and serials to achieve this.

    Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum located here http://tinyurl.com/9fhdl5 . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams. You may want to check the threads available there for additional assitance and support.

    Good luck!
