So, this cannot be accomplished with Windows disc management, I have to have
a third party app?

The Recovery disk will not allow you to dictate partitions, so that will 

have to be done after the Vista install, but before the Win7 install.  It 

will also require the use of a third party partitioning app.  You can use 

the one at the link below for free for personal use.




Since you will have to use the Recovery disk, you might also consider 

leaving the present install intact and just adding partitions and Win7 to 

what you already have.  It will take a little more work to get the C: drive 

to use a separate partition for your Program Files folder, but that's not an

insurmountable task.  I could even show you how to do it over a remote 

connection, but you will likely need to do the actual work involved (since 

messing with system settings often cuts off remote connections)
