 ;D Well if you insist chip. Will try another HD first. Is there any chance of vista 64 influencing a disk for XP while installing ?
Just on and off tonight,watching veetle tv, some teams called bruins and canadians.

I have no experience with 64bit OS's. I would believe that after you physically install HDD #2 that it will then become recognized by disk management. Once windows has established that install the XP disc reboot (if necessary) and install on #2. The bootloader for XP should be automatic; if not the great minds here will walk you thru.  O0

P.S. The Bruins are Synbios's team and the Canadiens are from Canada like our dearly beloved Gibbler, the NHL.

We had an amazing win last night with Ryder's goal in OT!
I bet the canadiens weren't expecting that last night after they had 2 goals in 55 seconds in the 2nd!

 ;D Hockey?
Gonna take the plunge and get win 7. Presume full retail version is what I`m after ? Ultimate or Professional  64 bit?  Just noticed that my disk for vista 64 is an OEM software  version. Wasnt happy after partitions etc,but was easily cleaned up/formatted. The vista disk did repair and put pc back to original full size 1tb . Shops closed tmw but will try sun/mon or check out Amazon.
cheers

update-- ordered win 7 ultimate 32 &64bit included. Full retail  ver. Pick up tmw monday. None in belfast, but in Lisburn or Bangor each 8 miles away

Woops, bad example from an admin indeed. I felt like the topic was swaying.

Win7 is the way to go. It's way better than Vista!

 ;D As we look I am on Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. Trying to put a few finishing touches to it and seeing whats new.
So what do I call this OS ? Vista windows 7 64 bit  >:D
Nice new pictures and different icons and boot up slightly faster. Very like my vista 64 with everything polished up.
Still it better come good as I go along. £161.00 GBP is a hell of an upgrade.
Will let you know later.
cheers

win7 has a lot of advantages,

much better boot up times and performance.
very handy hybrid sleep mode ( i dunno if Vista had this)
subtle and nice graphics and interface upgrades.
better driver support.
better support for TRIM/SSD if you plan on getting one later (or if you already have one)

Your first point was worked on and surprised me. Now that I have chips/syn`s/half`s/billy`s/olday`s/and even danny`s passwords,I`m trying to see who has most lolly for my vacation. About time to close this thread before someone catches up to me.
Will start a new one about virtual XP mode which is free download for win 7 pro and ultimate
