Bootable DVD can be made for both win7 as well as for win vista, as you are already running your machine on win vista you need to burn that to a DVD for fresh installation .to perform this task , go for most popular CD and DVD burning tools which can help you in the process of copying the content. use tools like ImgBurn to burn the ISO to a DVD. then Partition Your Hard Drive after that Install Windows vista this will make copy of content.

1.First copy windows file to hard disk:
you need to have all the Windows 7 or Windows Vista files. you can also add
more custom files, like drivers or whatever etc.
2.Generate IOS file:
Open a command prompt console (with Administrator's rights) type as
oscdimg -n -m -b"C:\Win7 7048 EN\DVD Bootable Tools\x86_Boot
At this point of time you will having a new ISO file for Windows 7 or Vista.
if you want to go for Windows x64, use the other file types for x64 as:
oscdimg -n -m -b"C:\Win7 7048 EN\DVD Bootable Tools\x64_Boot
3.Burn IOS file:
Burn new IOS to a DVD media using softwares, like NERO, ROXIO, ImageBurn, etc.
this will help to do the task.

You can go for booting as
First, you have to insert the Vista DVD. Then start ImgBurn which the tool for copying and click ?Create image file from disc.? the default image will be copied to the root folder of the C: drive. click on the start/burn graphic in the bottom of the application window after selecting the DVD drive you want. it will creat an image file as of .iso to the root of your C: drive. When ImgBurn finishes copying the data close it.put a blank DVD-R in the drive after removal of Vista disc . Click on " My Computer" on the desktop and then to C: drive. right-click on the copy of .iso file. start burning process using ImgBurn this will create copy od vista. similarly you can go for win7.
