I've got a copy of Vista Home Premium 64bit on an OEM edition, I'm going to install it on my PC which currently has XP Pro, I've tried booting from the Vista disc which runs until it gets to the select installtion drive stage.
My hard drives appear on the list but my System drive doesn't, my system drive currently has XP pro on it and is a pair of drives in a striped RAID that opperate as a single drive.
I am I right that my system drive doesn't appear because it already has an OS on it and my disc is OEM ?
Also which is the best method of formatting my machine prior to putting Vista on ? maybe running my XP disc and formatting via that ?
And if I do format my drive/drives will they lose the striped RAID fuction and appear as 2 drives instead of one combined ??
Not sure they'd even permit an answer to this question on the forum as technically it would be instructions on how to breach license terms and Microsoft are already showing signs of being even more litigeous over Vista than usual.
