Dual boot seven same serial ?

Hello

I wish to be able to compare 2 different and incompatable graphic cards. I have a Win 7 Pro install.
Would I be able to make a dual boot ? One with the first GC and the second with the other ?

It is to say 2 installs of the same Win 7 licence on the same disk (2 partitions)

And if not possible this way what could be the right solution ?

Thanks

Its possible. As long as only one is on at a time. the license doesnt know about the other boot option and both cant be booted at the same time.

It will be hard to compare video cards that way but it will work

Let us know if you need help with any of this

Thank you Ken ! I will do that and will report if any problem. My purpose is to evaluate the GPU factor while simply reading and editing H264 files.

Thank you very much.
