Vista 64 to W7 Pro downgrade question

Hi,

I'm going to load windows 7 pro on existing vista 64 system.
Question is:
If I were to do a clean install with w7 pro and keep my d: drive with the factory image of vista 64, would I be able to reload/recover back to vista 64 using my recover disks or d drive factory image that I keep if I can keep it? just wondering I know I can go back from a upgrade.

Thanks.

If you have your partition and recovery disk you should. just make sure the disks are still ok and bootable

Good luck Mate'
