A friend of mine appears to need to reinstall Windows 7 from scratch, but does not want to wipe the drive without having tried the process first (to be reasonably sure that it will be successful).
I was thinking about installing Windows into a directory separate from the normal installation directory of
Given Windows 7 Home Premium on OEM media, is it possible to specify an alternate installation directory in order to install side-by-side with an existing Windows installation on the same partition? If it is possible, then how to do it? Step-by-step instructions would be great in order that I could provide the URL to this question and just say "follow these instructions to the letter and it'll work".
Google only found me pages on how to change the default program installation path.
