    a. You won't be unhappy with Win7..... Vista is crap.
    b. You can preserve Vista (yuk!) by installing Win7 to unallocated space following Vista (which you may have to create). That will set up a dual-boot and you will have both.

    Instructions are in this forum if you need further assistance.

    Thanks for the reply.
    i guess dual boot will occupy lot space on my hardisk and sometimes results in file crashing.
    Incase if i install win 7 on a unallocated space, is it easy to delete vista for c drive? and whats the procedure of removing it.

    thanks
