Dual Boot Windows 7 twice
Missed that but did this..

Downloaded East BCEdit, added the drive number of the second drive as a Windows 7 OS, rebooted, and both systems show up on a boot menu to be selected, ex. Windows 7 and VMWare (2nd Win7 OS)

Done.

That's great news.

Thanks for the update as it'll probably help others with a similar problem.

Dual Boot of same Operating System

Another reason is one I have. When 1st getting my Laptop with Vista Ultimate it ran great 2.5 years ago, but inspite of trying to clean registries and normal maintenance I really need a clean install. But I do not want to take the time all at once. Plus there are a few older versions of a couple of programs that allow me to do things online that the newer versions don't and unable to get older versions now.

This is my 1st post so not positive if this is best place to post this ? but what is best way to create dual boot of Vista Ultimate. I assume I would need to make new partition but have no disk just drive D with original boot drive instalation?
