Hi there. Not a legal copy of Vista huh? tsk .. hehs. Anyhow, as to your question. I'd advise at least 50GB or more, as Vista takes more space during installion. Now, if you delete a partiton, it will show you an "unpartitioned space" on the hard drive. you need to "merge" it back to your primary partition. U can do this thru Computer Management, under Adminstrative Tools. Hope this answers your questions. P.S. Oh yeah, good idea to download that advisor off M$'s site to see if you need the Vista's min requirements.
You can't make a install CD from the restore partition D. This partition isn't the Vista install disc, it's actually a direct image of your C drive when it was brand new from the factory. If all you're wanting to do is reinstall windows, you can do this without a disc. Newer systems that come with Vista use a custom made firmware or BIOS that allows you to hit a key during the boot process that will start system restore. This will format your drive C and copy the contents from D over to C so you can have a complete clean working factory settings Vista experience. The other reason why you can't make a install disc from D is cause usually D is encrypted/locked so that you can't make any changes to the files or read/copy the files.
Partioning won't injury your hardware yet as you having Vista and its improve of Xp it won't permit you install Xp on it.First You partition your force there is in outfitted partiton supervisor in it and partition magic softwares additionally are available... then you definately positioned in Xp and then as you having the Acer workstation you will discover restoration disc and then u can deploy Vista. My chum is utilising the two working device simelatneously yet its a crack version of Xp so its working for Cracks so u attempt this way..... and backup ur archives and anyhow as u havin the restoration disc u can reinstall living house windows vista.
There is no way unless you actually have an XP installation disk and use it to install XP over your Vista which will then disappear
