Windows 7: Triple Boot question..

Triple Boot question..

Good evening,

I have a question or 2 I would enjoy hearing some thoughts on..

First a bit of background on my current system and what I would like to do..

I have a 2 disk multiboot setup with XP and Vista 64 each operating system on a seperate disk.

I would like to partition a disk to install windows 7 and triple boot.
I also run an SLI graphic card setup (nvidia).

My questions are as follows:

1. Would it be best to partition the Vista disk for the windows 7 install? ( I installed xp first then vista since I understand the oldest version should go first, adding 7 should be just fine in the order of things).

2. On the boot screen as it appears now, Vista then earlier version of windows, will windows 7 now be added as a new option along with the current ones without any issues?

3. I wouldn't need to remove one of the graphic cards before installing another version would I? I don't believe I did when installing Vista, though xp I had that issue.

Thanks in advance...

If you create another partition and install 7 onto it - you should get another entry in the boot menu for 7 at the top, as the default.

You can partition either drive and install 7 - whichever you prefer.

I don't imagine there will be any issues with the graphics card.
