Managing Hard Drive to Install Windows 7, will it affect One Key Recovery Button/Features?

[ Edited ]

Hello Everyone,

 

 

I just got Windows 7 beta and looking to do a dual boot to try it out, if i manage my hard drive (allocate space on C) via Vista will it affect One key Recovery button or features? Thank You.

 

Or should i just use the D portion of the hard drive for it?

You haven't mention your model but basicly on any Ideapad if you just use D drive to install another OS on, it will not affect OKR if you do not change partitions sizes.
