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 -

Good Luck!

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 . 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!
