It does work, so there must be something specific in your setup causing the problems. :) How does the install process end, do you get any errors or crashes?

I think this could be another case of bad ISO burn, try burning the image again, but at a lower speed

You're installing Vista first, right? You're using separate partitions, right?

Dual Boot Vista/Win7

:) Thanks for your replies..I spent hours on this..(installed Vista then from inside Vista tried to install Win7 to a second partition..no luck..worked from XP but not Vista) ..then there was a glitch in the reboot of Vista next thing I had the Vista install disc in to fix the boot and low and behold I had a dual boot..so I am not too sure how it happened.and I have now shifted on to trying the Virtual pc and am fast running out of time to try everything with Win7...Just a thought install both platforms on two seperate partitions then put in the Vista install disk and go to repair program..just a thought..:) Have now tried this theory..and it works dual boot comes up after the repair and restart..ronpeck
