Dualboot question !

Hi.. I'm new here , and first of all "sorry my english"

I have dualboot XP SP3 and Vista Ultimate on my system,,and now i want to install Windows 7 over the XP OS. I wish to keep Vista with Windows 7 without reinstalling Vista.
Can I just install Windows 7 over XP , or should i be careful for MBR,or boot....

Welcome to Seven Forums!
You can load 7 over the top of XP but you will lose all the data. Make sure you backup everything you need first. Other than that you should have no problems.

no, it won't be a problem. Vista will remain and you will have the option to boot to either.

I'm running Vista Ultimate, and Windows 7 Ultimate , both x32.
The problem was the cable of my display... i switched on the other dvi connector, and work fine now. I have an dvi>hdmi adapter on the other dvi connector of my ATI 4850 which is conected in LCD television...
Windows 7 recognized the big LCD (tv) like Primary.....
Thanks to all of you...
