So I followed the instructions in that link and found something interesting that I thought others might like to see. After doing that I attempted to boot into Windows 7 and lo and behold, I got the Windows 7 splash screen, then wierdly, a message that said "preparing your desktop." The donut keep spinning for about 5 minutes and then I pale blue screen with "Windows 7,Build 7600, This is not genuine" in the bottom right hand corner. And, the donut kept spinning. I could access Task Manager or log off etc., but a real desktop never appeared. Due to time pressure, I logged off and went back to Vista where I now am. Later I will try to boot into Windows 7 again before I do an install of the x64 bit version.
If anyone has any thoughts on what is happeing I would love to hear them.
