Triple Boot Question

How do I add Vista to my dual boot with (7 and XP) installed first? I install Vista onto a partition and add the Vista option to the boot menu? Anything else I would have to do?

Also, Vista x86 or x64?

Same as given here: Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and Vista

If any OS is missing, add it using EasyBCD 2.0 after doing quick registration to use beta.

I would say adding Vista to the boot menu should do it. Point the addition to the Vista partition.

Did it not add itself?

All this of course depends on you configuration at the time of installation. If it does not work, post a Disk Management Screen Shot.

I haven't installed Vista yet, I just wanted to know if I was missing anything. Thanks for the help both of you.

Edit: Can't rep either of you because I haven't spread the rep around.
