    I want to install Vista on a new and larger drive. This has been devided into two partitions. When the installation disc boots up it loads up the Windows files and then shows the two partitions with their capacities but when one is choosen says that the space is not suitable. The drive is mounted in a caddy as I like to swap back to XP for some applications. I did a clean install some time ago on an unpartitioned drive mounted conventionally.

    you need a partition with NTFS format and 20GB empty space
    for the XP applications you can run them in compatibility mode or install it on Virtual PC 2007 (Business, Ultimate and Enterprise editions only) I recommend you to get the latest version of these apps
