Ok, so the Windows 7 beta bug bit me and I've heard it's fairly nice and fast so I decided to try it for once. I don't want to get rid of XP, especially for a beta so I'm going to try to dual boot.
Now in order to do this, do I have to have 2 partitions on 1 hard drive to keep the OS installs on the same hard drive? From the tutorials I've read, I think thats what they say and don't want to do considering I just reformatted almost a month ago. So my other option is to empty my 120GB onto my primary 320GB and just install it like that and use BIOS to switch. Also do I have to empty my 120GB to do that?

What do you guys think, I'm not good with windows seeing how it doesn't like me most of the time but should I just use 2 separate hard drives since I'm going 32-bit XP to 64-bit Windows 7? If the beta is smooth I'll buy the 2x2GB kit finally then buy Windows 7 when it's released.
