Please explain exactly why you want to have several Win7 installs on same PC:
It's my trauma with xp and my custom.
My only explanation is have specialized system for purposes : leisure, work, proofs, general,......
In the past I have take advantage os parallel system fighting the viruses.

For those reasons I don't think it's worth running multiple copies of Win7, for which you'd need to buy a license for each to be legal anyway.

Why not concentrate on using the Best Practices, methods and tools to obtain and maintain a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which are the same as for retail.

Sure...virtually installed. VMs run at pretty much native speeds now. My comments where that there's no reason to run the same OS on the computer. You get 30 days *cough* 120 days *cough* to test out the OS, before you need to activate it for good, assuming it is Windows 7.
