    I've been googling around for this but been unable to find any conclusive answers. It seems like i should be able to run the isntallation CD and do a fresh install from XP if i so choose, but as i already have a 25gb partition lying around, i was thinking if it was perhaps possible to set it up to dual boot like this? So keep C: for XP but install windows 7 straight into D: from XP.

    The reason i ask is because i don't have a DVD, i don't have a writer (and don't have a USB stick), i could probably get this done sometime next week but was hoping i could try it out this weekend. This obviously means that i would have to be able to finish the entire install from XP, because if it restarts and boots into windows 7 looking for the DVD, it won't find it (since it was just mounted using daemon tools in XP).

    I doubt it's possible but figured i'd ask the experts :)
