Microsoft has sent me emails about Vista, since I signed up with something there are doing, they sent me a Vista download, they told me what to do to burn it to a cd or dvd (i forgot which one I did), but im skeptical of doing it incase i mess up, or my computer can't take it. I wanna be able to keep all my things that are on my 320GB Primary HD and use it with Vista. I also have a 80GB HD as my Secondary, completely free, nothing on it. So can you help me install it the proper way.

I have a Dell Demintion 2400:

Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 2.

Pentium® 4 CPU 2.66GHz
2.66 GHz, 512 MB of RAM

are you going to install VISTA over your current version of XP??

if so then i would not recommend installing a BETA OS on a drive if you have important files on it, just incase you lose them and then Microsoft cannot accept any responsibility as they did state it was BETA!!!

to be honest i would wait for the Final release (when it comes out in the shops) but if you really feel you want to do it then give me a shout!
