Just thinking ahead....for Win 8

My laptop comes with 4 drives...

My question is it possible, when Windows 8 arrives, to load it on D drive?
That way I will have both Win 7 on "C" and Win 8 on "D".

I had Vista Home Premium on my Desktop then upgraded 7 Home Premium over it.
So my 2nd question is ....Anyway to fetch Vista HP off desktop and transfer it to Laptop?
Forgive my dumb questions but was told the only dumb question is one that is never asked.
Thanks In Advance,
THW

1) dual booting will make the Recovery Partition unusable.

2)What version Vista, OEM, Retail, or OEM manufacturer?
