I would like to optimize the page files on both operating systems in my multi boot system.  Each OS has its own HDD.   I would like to palce the page file on a seperate HDD for each system.  This 'would overwrite' the current page file.  Can turn off the page file on vista, then boot to windows 7 and set page file to desired size, and place it on the vista HDD; then boot to vista and set its page file to the desired size, and place it on the windows 7 HDD?

i would NOT do that - if they use the same name, you risk one OS uses the other's file...

if you want still to do that, make a partition on each disk to hold the page file
