I'll have a stab at this mate as it is a bit confusing.

Now do you have all those OS's and want to install just one of them on a hard drive or do you have them all on one drive and wish the 7 to be the boot OS?

Some system specs would be real helpful too Speccy - Download

Personally I would pick 7 but hey it's your machine and depends what you want out of it.

Is the drive clean, new, spinner, or SSD?

Actually alpha unless I have it terribly wrong the OP reply to my query says he has all of those OS's and I take that as the install media/s and I then said what I would do and then left it to the OP to decide which one he was going to install.

I do know what you are saying and myself faced with the CD method unless 7 has the SP1 on it I would choose the stick method.

Anyway I'll leave as I don't want to get in the way.
