    Hi, all

    My computer is running Vista Home Premium as the main OS but is currently configured to Dual boot Vista along with Windows 7 Home Premium (I was giving Win7 a try and installed it on a separate 500GB drive)

    Well, I liked Win7 about a million times more than Vista (duh) so I purchased a copy of Win7 Ultimate. My configuration is: Vista on the Primary disk with Windows 7 Home Premium on the second disk.

    I would like to install my copy of Win 7 Ultimate on the disk that now has Vista on it, but I would like to keep (and be able to dual boot with) the installed version of Win7 HOME Premium where it is to use while I set up Win7 ULTIMATE the way I want it on the primary drive.

    Confused yet? Basically what I would like to end up with is a dual boot with Win7 Ultimate on my primary drive and Win7 Home premium on the second drive (where it is now).

    Is this possible, and if so, how would I go about it? I currently use Vista's boot manager, I assume ultimate would be able to perform this also...(BTW, both copies are licensed and legit, of course...)
