Windows Vista and 7 on one DVD/USB???

i have to manage and install (on a regular basis) PCs running Windows 7 and Vista so is it possible to have windows 7 and windows vista on one DVD or USB?? and can i change the background of the installation process so it doesnt just say windows 7 (me being picky)

I keep Vista on my Win7 USB install stick which is also my tool kit with several dozen installers on it. When I need to install Vista, I sweep the Win7 install files into their folder for storage and spill the Vista files out into the root of the stick.

The stick was originally set up by writing Win7 installation ISO to it using Universal USB Installer with WIn7 in the dropdown menu. I then copied in the other tools and Vista extracted ISO in its folder.

As stated whichever OS you're needing to install must have its files spilled out into the root to boot.

Why would you want to take Win7's branding off of the installation process?

You could also use MDT for this - you end up with a customized PE doing the install, so you have no branding (and you have the option to change the background, etc).

Alright, this is what's going on. I installed vista on my harddrive, and then made a partition and installed windows 7 on it. I no longer want vista, and just want windows 7. How would I go about deleting vista all together, and just have windows 7?
