Is it as simple as installing (or already have it installed) Vista, then installing 7, then they'll come up in a dualboot menu and voila?

Or is it more complicated...? :?

In the times I've installed 6801 (x64), 6956, and 7000 dual booting with a vista Sp1 partition it has always been that simple. (When I installed 7000 I wiped the 6956 partition from the 7000 install disk it left the old Win7 boot menu option, but that was easily deleted from BCD edit, if you don't already have 7 Installed don't worry about this)

Nearly finished installing :D

When it rebooted it gave me two options

"Windows 7" and
"Microsoft Windows Vista"

So I guess it works :D

Yep, sounds like it worked perfectly! Enjoy the early leak, until the official version is released in a few days. :P

Maybe a bit late, but you can always dual-boot without many problems between and older build and a newer build if the older build is installed first, the boot.ini or the bootmanager are changed to the new builds one.
