Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

you can create a VHD then attach it, then install on the VHD

go to Disk Management click on a partition then more actions to create a vhd

After installing it will appear in your boot menu.

    Yes, possible of course possible. Any Linux distro has strong GRUB utility which controls total boot procedure and multi OS. If u already installed 7(hope so) simply insert CentOS cd/dvd into ur dvd drive and start installation. Just take care at the time of partition ! ! Never accept system generated proposal, select custom partition. The menu.lst should look like this: title=Linux root (hd0,0) kernel /vmlinuz root=/dev/sdb2 quiet title=Windows rootnoverify (hd1,0) chainloader +1 Best to read this URL and  start ur task, but take backups of ur necessary data before doing the task.
