Installing Windows 7 with Vista already installed

  1. I'd like to install windows 7. I am running Vista and I had made a partition when I thought I wanted to have also windows XP just in case. I never installed XP because I liked Vista.
    That partition is empty and my question is this:

    Vista is running on 32-bit, but my computer says it is capable of running 64-bit.
    Can I install Windows 7 on that empty partition at 64-bit without disturbing Vista on 32-bit?

    Sorry, are you saying that yes I can install Windows7 64bit on the clean partition and still run
    Vista 32bit?

    Yep, there aren't any issues having both as long as they are installed on different partitions.
