Greg: just to clarify regarding the new 1TB drive....
Im going to use PWBD to:
1) Partition the drive into 3 partitions? 1x100Gb, 1x400Gb, 1xthe rest approx 500Gb?
2) Leave all 3 partitions unallocated
3) Re-Image Vista from my D: to the 2nd 400GB partition
I presume the act of re-imaging that to the 2nd partition will set it to Primary and Active or do I need to do that with PWBD before I unplug my old C: and try to boot to Vista from the 1TB drive?
Once I can boot into Vista ok from the 1TB drive - I go back into PWBD, set partition one to a primary partition and then set it to active. (does this de-activate the vista partition?)
And then install Windows 7 to partition 1?
Just a mental checklist. Please correct my errors before I do this - as this is quite techy for me
thanks to both of you too for help and advice. Ive been using those lil scales
Least i can do!
