No problem.
Disconnect the present HDDs temporarily and do a clean install of Vista on the new HDD.
When it's up and running to your satisfaction, just reconnect the other HDDs, change the BIOS back to boot from the W7 HDD (it will have switched when you booted without it), and use Easy2 to add a Vista entry to the W7 BCD.
Select the letter which W7 sees Vista as, not C which Vista calls itself. (you can set the letter to whatever you'd prefer W7 to call Vista (V for example) in Disk Management.
