Windows 7: Windows 7 and XP Twinload help

Windows 7 and XP Twinload help

Hey everyone!

I've finally got my hands on a 32-bit Windows 7 Disc! And I wish to Dual-Boot Windows XP and Windows 7. At present, I'm running a dual-boot of XP Pro and Vista Home Basic. I wan't to overwrite Windows Vista with a clean install of Windows 7, rather than an upgrade. I wan't to know if I go through with this, will XP still be selectable in the Windows 7 boot menu? And if not, how to remedy this. Thanks!

Yes boot Win7 DVD, select Custom Install, then Drive Options to delete Vista partition, create New one, format and install there. It should configure Dual Boot with XP. If not, install EasyBCD 2.0 to Win7 and add XP after accepting offered boot files.
