Installation Query

My PC came with a free upgrade to Vista from XP so when I installed Vista I added a new hard drive and opted for dual-boot. I therefore currently have C drive for XP and L drive for Vista. I never boot to XP these days so my question is will I be able to install Windows 7 as a fresh install on C thus creating a dual boot with Vista. That way I can revert back to Vista for a while if need be while my Windows 7 installation builds. In other words do what I did last time but this time Vista becomes the old drive!

yes when installing 7 you have the option of formatting the drive and doing a clean install or keeping xp and installing to a partition. dual boot works fine, i have xp,vista,7 and ubuntu on 2 partitioned drives.

Yes it will have to be a clean install as Microsoft are not providing an upgrade path from XP. I assume your referring to the future release version not the current beta.

Thanks for the replies.

Yes I do mean the release version.
