In order to have both on your computer (practically anyway) is to have them on different hard drives or partitions. If you only have one drive with one partition, then you have only one OS installed, that's the way the installer works (right click on computer and select properties to see which one). If you have a big enough drive then you can shrink the current partition and create a new one with the remaining space. If you do not have the space, or would like to skip the risk of partitioning an active drive, just purchase a second hard drive ($40.00-$60.00 typically) and install the second OS on the second drive. You should know that you will need a second activation key to use the second version of Windows 7 even if your install disk has the capability of installing either version of the OS (one key per installation, not per computer hardware).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.
