i downloaded vista advisor and it said that i cannot upgrade vista but can install it on my new drive. (this is maybe because i got more space on my new one) Anyway, can i buy the upgrade and install it on my new drive, which windows xp isnt on? Or do i have to get the retail version to install on it?

List your system specs and I'll let you know if you can upgrade to Vista....irregardless however you do need an appropriate anount of disk space (more tha XP's requires). If your system does meet the requirement, I would reccomend you do install it on the other HD, and have a dual boot scenario untill you are comfortable with it and bugs worked out. Also if you are going to install Vista (beta) do not install it over XP

the only difference between the upgrade and the full disk
the upgrade disk will ask you to pop in your previous version disk to check you are qualified for the discounted upgrade disk
you can upgrade or clean install from either disk
vista retail is not available until the end of january
