    Your tablet would need to use an Intel processor, which is not very likely. Windows 7 only runs on Intel/AMD processors and for the upcoming Windows 8, you can only go to the store and buy the Intel/AMD version. If you have an Intel tablet, then you would just need to partition the storage into two partitions (one for Android, one for Windows) and then install Windows in the blank partition.

    it would have a boot loader. I run Win7 and Fedora 17 Linux on my laptop. At boot, i select which operating system to boot to.

    What tablet do you have? If you post a brand and model we could probably figure what processor it has and if it is even possible.

    I don't know about dual-booting Windows and Android.

    I dual-boot Windows and Linux. I have Windows 7 Professional and openSUSE 12.1 currently, but I'll probably add Fedora 17 (and triple-boot).

    On a desktop, you need to install Windows first, and then install a Linux distro. You really cannot install Linux first and then install Windows. I have never run Android, so I don't know if an Android installation has to follow a Windows installation, like how it is done with Linux.

    The boot loader will look something like this if you are dual-booting a Linux distro and Windows.



    That is Ubuntu, but all Linux distros use Grub or Grub2.

    The Acer W500 runs Win7, Win8 REALLY well, and Android 4.0.3 ICS (though not well supposedly) per this link:
