Hi,

I just build own computer about nine months ago and have two hard drives. The first hard drive is a 1TB hard drive, which has Windiws Vista Ultimate 64-bit on it, and the second hard drive is a 250GB hard drive, which I am using as a back up drive, but wanted to know if I install Windows 7 RC on the 250GB hard drive, would it cause problems on my 1TB hard drive with Windows Vista on it? Or would you recommend for me to get a cheap desktop computer, or laptop to test Windows 7 RC on it just to be on the safe side?

Since you're using two drives, you shoudn't have any issues loading Windows 7 onto the empty drive. Just make sure you set the boot order up to boot to that drive. The only dual-boot issues I've heard are when 7 and another OS are loaded on one drive.
