so i have a laptop with a 160gb hard drive, and

a another recovery hard drive ( which has my resote to factory setting in it )

and it had vista built in in

then i partitioned it and make another hdd which was 30gb and i installed windows 7 on it

so i had a dual boot with vista and windows 7 then both worked smoothly

now can i do this ???

make another partition and install ubuntu linux on it and have a triple boot

so i get the option of choosing windows 7 , vista or ubuntu

is this possible ??? will it work and will it be smooth and will they work together as a triple boot?

also will it effect my recovery hard drive ( which has my restore to factorysettingg in it )
like will i be able to use it to restore my laptop to factory settings if i want to ??

so basically can i have a triple boot with windows 7 ubuntu and vista and all 3 of them work perfecly

Have a look at this one - seems pretty simple but I haven't tried it yet.

This method works wonders. I use Wubi Ubuntu on my Vista machine.
