Can't you copy windows xp that is already installed and upgrade that copy of xp to vista? I don't know about the steps. The manual isn't very helpful. It says that copied os go to bootwiz folder. How do you make it go onto a new partitioned drive? Does that mean that there are 2 os in one partition? In that case can you upgrade one of them to vista while keeping the other as xp? Thanks for helping people!
