I have a couple of questions regarding different install methods of Windows 7 (Vista as well I guess).
First of all the installation types I ask about is a bootable one, that allows you to use everything in your computer. IE not in a virtual environment.
These are the ones I am familiar with:
There is the old fashioned, insert your CD/DVD and boot from that.
There is the USB pen drive install.
What other ways of installing is there?
Is it possible to create a partition on your harddrive that you can boot from, and begin installation from there? If so how?
Is it possible to install Vista/Windows 7 from INSIDE a operating system with Daemon-Tools as the image mounter, and then reboot onto that?
I have 3 HDD. One is a Raptor, which I mainly use for gaming and applications. The 2 others is regular 7,2K drives with storage space on.
Lastly, the most important of my questions;
Could I create several partitions that contained installation files for vista/Windows 7 (or others), and when I choose to boot from them I the installation screen would be brought up?
Thanks in advance.

I installed 7 from within Vista. I used WinRar (I think 7zip will also work FREE Great Programs for Windows 7) to extract the iso and clicked on setup.exe. Select custom install. Select the partition you want to install to and your off and running. You can also put the DVD in the drive and click on the setup.exe file from there. When you boot you should get a list of OS boot options which you can select from. The default is the last OS installed, but this can be changed.
