Sure which?


Make two partitions

Install one in the first

Install the second in the second (a menu will be created to let you choose)


What else specifically are you trying to do?

It Is highly possible.

Here is how:

Boot with your DVD in the drive boot from the dvd, when it asks you wether you want to repair an existing windows, say no. use custom and install the new os on an empty drive say d drive. once it is done when you boot normally it will give you two windows installation to chase from and here we go

Hello Sender, and welcome to Seven Forums.

In addition, you could use this as a guide to help. Just substitute Vista for the other Windows 7 instead.

Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and Vista

If you want to install the second OS to another HD, you can boot via the BIOS which is a cleaner method that keeps the HD's independent so they can come and go as you please.

Just unplug the first OS HD when you are installing to the second HD, then set the target HD to boot first, after DVD drive.

After install, replug the other HD. Now when you want to choose the other OS HD to boot, tap the key given on first boot screen for one-time Boot Menu and choose the other HD instead.

If you keep both HD's plugged during install, it will configure a Windows-managed dual boot which means the HD's are interdependent and harder to extricate.
