So I already have vista 32 and recently got 64 and would like to try it out and perhaps one day move over to it, but for now, just try it out. So i was curious as to a safe way to install it without bothering my other os. My processor should support it and all other peripherals (hopefully). Yes, someone else probably has a SIMILAR thread but I didnt believe that one addressed exactly these issues for me to receive optimal support. Any insight would be very welcome. Also, I have partition magic if it is necessary to use it (v8.5). I also have access to other versions if necessary. Thank you. Sorry in advance for not including some minute strain of necessary information.
