    ok yes its an EFI bios...secondly in the bios i can see different options for different drives
    so i would need another hard drive for my 7 installation right?

    hiya,yes you should install 7 to another drive,when installing 7 make sure you point it to the new drive where it will format before install,when the setup is complete at startup you will be given a choice to which os you want to use
