    You'll need two partitions, then install vista to second partition and then windows 7to the first. You'll then have windows 7 and vista offered as choices in the bootloader.

    If you go to disk management and supply a pic of what it looks like. I could see what options we'd have.

    I don't know why you want Vista but would a virtual PC like VMware Player solve your need without dual booting?
