I am currently studying for an A-Plus certification to which was recently added troubleshooting Windows 7 to the exam. You also have to be very familiar with Vista as well. I only have XP on my Compaq Presario V2000, but I wanted to set it up ( I believe I have the minimum requirements for both ) so that I could run trial versions of Vista and 7 virtually.Windows 2000 is also on the exam. Is there an easy legal way to do this? I wouldn't mind partitioning my HDD for the four operating systems either. Thnx if you have any ideas, JLS

Legal questions are outside of the scope of SU. You seem to know you can get trial copies. Why not get them and try it? What's your actual question/problem? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Sep 8 '12 at 15:35

You can get a trial of Windows 7 here.

It would appear MS has removed all the Vista trial versions, I cant seem to find any. I didnt even bother with 2000.
