Re: Windows Vista Installation
you can install vista on primary partition only with at least 15GB free disk space.

Re: Windows Vista Installation
Yeah Vista I think will only install on a C partition. Also, Vista will kill your XP CD-Key.

If I were you, backup all your stuff. Format your drive, and do a clean installation.

Re: Windows Vista Installation
You can install Vista on any of those partition the layout of where an OS is installed shouldn't matter, thats what the bootloader is for.

Re: Windows Vista Installation
Yeah, you can install it in any partition [I installed it on the secondary one]. The thing is that when you are on XP, XP disk is labeled C: and Vista drive is labeled D:; when you are on Vista, Vista disk is labeled C:, and XP drive is labeled D:, i dunno, it's kinda weird...

You know, i have a barnoaflas copy of XP and a barnoaflas copy of Vista, but it don't killed my XP key, both are working fine... about 2 weeks working like this. Of course, automatic updates are deactivated on both OS's.

And you only have to select which OS you want to boot with at the startup...

Re: Windows Vista Installation
Just some advice though:

Don't install Vista.

I went back to XP since almost nothing was Vista-compatible, just wait like 4 months lol.
