    The guide is nothing more than an easy way to get a multiboot system up and going in a reasonably simple manner. Vista does not have to be installed to use the Windows 7 Beta... this guide just uses that as a starting point. Once you burn the ISO to disk it will load normally on a blank drive.

    Actually, Vista SP1 DOES have to be installed first to upgrade to Windows 7 beta.

    How to install the Windows 7 Beta

    Microsoft says nothing about you need Vista to install

    Sorry to disagree, but the ISO I downloaded the other day was put onto a clean drive. This was the 64-bit version. If yours requires Vista, you might want to get another download. Mine is listed as Build 7000 on the desktop backgroud after installation.

    This was a pretty good guide on multi-booting!

    But what do you do in August after Windows7 goes out of public beta?

    Do you just install Vista over Windows 7 and delete the extra partitions?

    Some explanation would be appreciated on this

    BTW....I installed Windows 7 on a "clean" drive without problem.
