Default Re: Triple boot Windows: XP, Vista, and 7?

Jesus, way to derail the OP guys.

To the OP: just create a new partition of 50Gb or so then do a fresh (full) installation of W7 and it will recognize your other OS in the bootloader and give you the option of what to boot into as usual.

No further muss is required, I have quad-boot and have never had to download third party garbage, etc. to get a multi-boot working.

I think one caveat is that you must install the "oldest" OS first, else the boot loader will not recognize the newer OSs - so as long as you are installing W7 last, you should have no problem.
