I was gonna say Vista should take no more than a hour on compatible hardware.

Please do. That way when i upgrade to 64 bit almost everything will be compatible. :laughing:

oh sorry for late reply, thought the thread died XD

I tried to partition windows seperately but it wouldn't work out as I use all the default windows media folders to make things simple. That isn't a problem in itself but since they're all asociated with windows, everything i tried to put in there would just go to the windows partition. I tried making seperate folders on the storage partition and changing the start shortcut paths to suit those folders instead but the vista start menu is so rigid it just started screwing up and forced me to reformat to correct a bunch of errors. I just left it whole afterwards to save myself a migrane.

I don't mind reformatting and installing vista. it's simple and takes 15 minutes.

you ever have to back up 750 gigs of media onto dvd's? Its unbearably time consuming, and rather expensive haha. I run a pretty tight schedule since my job blows and I consider any remaining time i have as quite valuable. That's why I was wondering if there was a workaround.

I gave up and decided to order another HD since I wanted to raid0 them anyway. Would just tranfer the files that way, but I just blew the heater core and head gasket in my car tonight so looks liek my plans are screwed.

Anyhow thanks for the help I guess theres no getting around it. (**** you microsoft, lmao) Though vern that's a big help thanks. At least that way I wont have to **** with all the settings to make vista not irritating. lol Thanks again.
