When you sign into your Vista partation to play steam you will have to input your password and the same if you went to play in Vista then back to Win 7!

You wont have to reinstall your games but you might have to set screen resoulotion, sound settings etc.
Thanks for the reply but i was not the one asking how. I was pointing out that if you still have the partition steam is on you do not need to reinstall steam or backup or download your games again, all you have to do is start steam and it will install the service for windows 7.
