Installing Windows 7 onto a Second Hardrive

I'm not sure if this has been coverd or not, pretty new here

But I'd like to know, how would i go about installing Windows 7 onto my second hardrive?

I'm running Vista Ultiamte SP1 32-Bit on my main hardrive, but now today I've formatted my other hardrive, so would i have to run the installaton on Windows? Or do i have to run the installation through boot-up and pick the second hardrive?

I do want a dual boot as well, I'd like to run Vista too.

Hello Deadman,

You would just run the Windows 7 installation at boot from the DVD and select the 2nd hard drive during installation.

You will have Vista and Windows 7 at boot to select which OS you want with Windows 7 (last installed OS) as the default.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
