ah, see, there's another problem - one of the reasons I'm trying to upgrade is because my old vista disc got cracked in half, and I haven't been able to do a clean install of vista because of that

Sounds like you're in a pickle until your disc arrives.. Wish there was something else I could suggest...

That's alright. I'm worried, though, that something is screwed up beyond the ability of an install disc to figure out.

Worst comes to worst, throw in a different drive when the disc gets there...

Thanks for all the help. What I've done in the interim is use the 64bit disc that I had to at least give me vista for now. I'll post an update whenever I get the 7 disc.
