Here you have Partition Magic download with reviews:

Also, you can indeed edit the boot.ini file for multiboot, but you have to be very careful when doing that.

I did it some years ago and screwed things up, so better do an extensive search on that matter before doing it.

Theoretically I think you just have to add another line similar to that for XP and substitute only the partition number. I'm not sure what it would be for O:\ if 1 is for C:\

TIP: Take a look at the boot.ini file from Windows 7 and see if it's similar to that from XP.

Re: Can I Install Windows 7 just mounting it in Daemon tools?

Windows Vista and 7 use a slightly different and complicated method to set boot priority and boot options (bcdedit and bootrec). It's no longer simple as editing the boot.ini file.

This article might help:

How to use the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment to troubleshoot and repair startup issues in Windows

And in my experience installing Windows using the ISO just works. But still its recommended to burn it to the DVD and use it.
