now thx for this but i'll stick with XP
At the moment that is the best choice. But once Windows 7 is released your opinion will change for sure.

Re: Windows 7 Installation Guide / Tutorial

Hello everyone,

Stumbled upon this website and saw this thread. I have a question. Im running windows Vista x64. Can i partition the drive i have so it won't conflict with vista? I tried running vista and XP dual and it didn't work right. So im wondering whether these two would conflict even though on a different partition.

thanks

Yes you can dual boot Windows 7 with Vista x64 when both versions are installed in separate partitions. And since Windows 7 uses the same type bootloader as in Vista, you can even install Windows Vista after installing Windows 7. In any case, since you already have Vista installed, just make a partition (I guess 15GB should be enough for Windows 7 64bit) and install Windows 7, and the system should automatically dual boot.

The problem with Windows XP and Vista dual booting is that, they won't automatically dual boot if XP is installed after Vista. It's a good practice when dual booting, to install an earlier version of Windows first then the more recent versions.

Nope, it's still in private beta. Only vendors and selected professionals have access to the original release from Microsoft.

Long time no see? And yes, I do agree. I don't like the style of what looks like the final release. But some people might like it

Dear Strider,

Help needed.

When I am installing Windows 7 6956, when the system restarts in between, system is again asking whether to boot from DVD. If selected yes system is again installing . Else system is giving Disk read error.

Is there anything todo when system restarts.

Sorry for a late response.

Are you sure the DVD you're using is good? You may try burning it again and try. Also please post the exact disk read error, a photo of the error screen, if possible, will be great.

Just wished to mention one small point: In case you are dual booting Win7 with Vista, Windows 7 will show as the default OS and after a stipulated time, automatically boot in it, unless you manually select Vista.

Should you wish to keep Vista as your default OS, you makes the changes as follows : In Vista, Rt click Computer > Properties > Advanced > Startup & Recovery > Settings. Change your default OS to the desired one. You can also change the time interval here.
