I have Windows XP Pro and Vista 64 installed as a dual boot on the same drive. So can I install Windows 7 RTM on the same drive with them without uninstalling the other 2 OS's? And how?

The same way you did with 2, make a new partition.

Easiest way is through the Windows 7 installation disc using diskpart, you can shrink an existing partition.

Compared to programs like "gparted" its somewhat primitive though.

Ran into a problem. Could not install on same drive. So I installed on different drive, look good until I rebooted. It seems there's no way to boot to Windows 7. I see XP and Vista in boot up. But no 7.. It's on that drive but don't know how boot from it. Does anybody?
