    Hi everyone,

    I was going to install windows 7 but came by some problems people saying.
    I have windows vista home premium 32bit installed in the first partition of my laptop(C), and I want to add a new partition and install windows 7 ultimate 64bit on it(D).

    Would really appreciate replies and helps
    Thanks a lot
    Sina

    My vista is original(it is a laptop with vista home premium).

    yesman, you are dual booting with vista? (Vista in C:, 7 in D: ) ?

    I have a dual boot system with XP and 7. Under XP i used acronis disk director 10 to create an new partition for Windows 7. I created it in the first place of the harddisk, because the speed is highest there. I gave it drive letter G and called it "Windows 7".
    Then I installed 7 into the partition named "Windows 7".
    When I boot into 7 now, it has drive letter C, and XP has D.
    When I boot into XP, it has C, and 7 has G. (E,F are used for other partitions.)
    Drive letters are assigned dynamically, they are not static.

    Why don't you do it like this?

    Forget everything I said in previous post your SLIC is in BIOS. I was talking about Vista Pirated with GRLDR/SLIC 2.0

    What manual verification ?, grldr given in the thread when pasted in boot partition and make it boot, HP slic 2.1 is emulated in bios. Use HP cert 2.0 given there both for vista and win 7 ultimate. Use HP supporting vista ultimate/premium oem key and win 7 ultimate oem key. Both ur vista and win 7 ultimate is activated now.

    yesman, how is it possible? you have several drives and have no OS installed in C. then you install 7 in D? It automatically makes D primary drive and it becomes C!

    Thanks

    You can do as you like with acronis. You found Win 7, you will find acronis as well for sure. Important: Use only the latest build 2161 for full Vista support!

    Can't help you with activation. I would not use a loader, I would use BIOS mod.
    At this moment my 7 is not activated at all. I will rearm, and in november I get a totally legal key from a friend of mine for free.

    Agree, yes rearm until the date when many new oem & retails are all over the place. Don't be such in hurry. You don't need a friend with keys, social engineering is ur freind... besides B&M are the best way to be legit.

    Keep it to urself on the slick, don't be lame & expect peeps to post publicly, decoys will tell the industry.

    sina, remember what I wrote about drive letter assignment. When you install 7, and boot into it, it will be C. Doesn't matter which letter you gave it when creating the partition under Vista.

    yesman, it is amazing to see this. As far as I can remember, windows makes its own drive C:. no matter if there be another C and it be even primary!

    Servi, yes I understand. although yesman proves you wrong, but I still believe what you are saying because of my own personal experience. but for the computer, the C drive will be the one created first.(based on if you installed xp first or 7 first.) and it boots from that drive.

    Thanks
