Yes/no.

It may be a simple question, but the answer is not completely straightforward.

If you re-read attentively first post here:

you should be able to see how you can have as many 2K/XP (and conversely 2003 ;)) in the same partition and 1 (and one only) Vista :ph34r:/7/2008 in that same partition, BUT you can have more using some other methods and/or using a couple of "advanced" tricks.

(admittedly this is not fully "evident" or "esplicitly stated" :blushing: but since it is an "advanced" use one would presume that before trying this complex setup will have a couple tries with the tool to get familiar with it and with the docs/howto's )

The new place for the link suggested for the multiple Vista :ph34r:/7/2008 is this one:

http://www.rmprepusb.com/tutorials/how-to-create-a-usb-drive-that-will-install-vista-win7-and-server-2008

or you can try the newish approach here:

http://www.rmprepusb.com/tutorials/firawiniso

or the even newer one here:

http://www.rmprepusb.com/tutorials/install-xp-and-win7-to-internal-hdd

Or you can use a partition entry switcher:

and still use WinSetupFromUSB (limited to up to 99 2k/XP/2003 and one Vista :ph34r:/7/2008 on first partition and another Vista :ph34r:/7/2008 on second partition)
