Well, you have until 3/10/2010 with the RC version to play with it, and Windows 7 is suppose to be released on 10/22/2009.

Hello Qosmio, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but you would need to either install Windows 7 on a separate partition or hard drive. It cannot be installed on the same partition that Vista is on without Vista being replaced by Windows 7. If you do not have another hard drive, then you can create a new partition (step 2A) from the Vista partition, if you have enough free space (20 GB), to install Windows 7 on.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

That's what I meant separate partition on driver c there's 80GB free, so I'll make another partition and install WIN 7 on it. Thanks a million for your answer, very help full. Kind Regards

Hello Qosmio,

If D is a OEM recovery partition, then you cannot split it to create another partition (ex: F) from without deleting D twice.

If not, then yes you sure can.

Qosmio,

Could you post a screenshot of your Disk Management first?

A OEM recovery partition is what is included in a store bought brand (ex: HP, Gateway, etc...) computer that is used to restore your computer's Vista installation back to factory condition when needed. It's usually not a good idea to mess with the recovery partition unless you have already created a set of recovery discs from it and do not plan on using the recovery partition again.
