...if I don't like win 7? and if so how hard is it to do so? I read in another post here at G2G that you can do a Dual vista to XP if the vista was installed first, is this possible for win 7 if so does anyone know where/how I can do this? The reason I ask is Toshiba has an upgrade for Win 7 and thought I might give it a try.

Thanks :)

Regards
BT

No you cannot downgrade from 7 to Vista, same way you can't downgrade Vista to XP.

If you re-read the topic you'll find that I am wanting to UPGRADING from Vista to Windows 7, not the other way around. Thanks for you reply anyway. :)

It seems you edited your question...

So what exactly is your question then? Judging by the topic it says "upgrading vista to windows 7, can it be reversed....." based on that I gave my response.

I wouldn't hesitate to upgrade though, I highly doubt you will want to go back to Vista once you install 7.

I agree go to Win 7 it is much more faster and secure then Vista.
With the upgrade you talk about in your first post you would not be able to setup a dual boot situation as each OS would be a separate partition then. Since a upgrade cannot be loaded on its own without a already existing OS installed installed on the same partition it would be impossible to do.
