    i am running a Vista Business authentic key activated online, now i want to put win7 till i get my order from amazon (home premium), so if i put the l*ader will it deactivate my already activated vista?

    there are no much tips on doing dual boot vista and win7 with loaders, any ideas?

    You have 3 options:

    1. Your actual Vista is an OEM version which was sold with your computer, then you'll have a problem if you activate Windows 7. You will need to reactivate your Vista like it was a pirate version ^^
    2. Your Vista is a box version or an OEM version that you installed by yourself, then you can do whatever you want since it doesn't use BIOS with OEM SLIC information.
    3. The third option is to rearm Windows 7 for 120 days, since you already bought it and will receive an official key to activate it on october 22.

    good luck ;)

    opa he can still have genuine vista and 7 loader, just cos the SLIC table is here it don't mean vista uses it. Just run 7 loader then activate Vista online normally
