My Set up is my Harddrive in 3 Partitions. 2 of them are Windows XP and i installed Vista on the 3rd one.


Hey I just got Windows Vista to try out, and I'm incurring a problem where I select the partition and install Windows Vista. Once the set up asks to restart the PC it restarts as normal and it brings me back to my original OS selection menu with my Windows XP os. The set up should continue with Windows Vista but there is with no Windows Vista in sight.

Anyone know a solution for Windows Vista to work it would be appreciated

I dont think you can multiboot windows vista with other operating systems on there.

you can with seperate h/drives.
I've got the following and installed it in that order

windows xp
windows xp 64bit
vista 64bit

when i boot my pc i get 1 of 2 choices if i want to load vista or a older operating system, selecting older operating system i get a choice of 2 again windows xp or windows xp 64bit.

FOR PEOPLE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH VISTA , AN EASY WAY AROUND THIS IS TO DOWNLOAD THE vISTA TRANFORMATION PACK VERSION 6 , LOOKS AND SOUNDS LIKE VISTA SIDE BAR, IM @ WORK SO CANT SEND IT BUT AVAILABLE TO DOWNLOAD OF THE TORRENT SITE.
