    I have read a number of threads that cited problems creating a partition with DDS10 for Vista. I currently have XP Home SP2 on a single partition C drive. I purchased DDS10 to partition the C drive and hoped to load Vista on the new partition and operate a dual boot arrangement. After reading many threads I am confused. Can DDS10 be used successfully to create a partition and run Vista in a dual boot arrangement.?

    If the answer is no, could I load Vista onto a single partition USB external hard drive and operate in a dual boot mode.?

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    You can use DDS from within XP Home to partition the drive ready for installation of Vista. When installing Vista to the new partition, you need to get Vista to format the new partition before installation. You should then uninstall DDS as any future operation of DDS is likely to corrupt your Vista install.
