    Just want to make sure I have this right. I have XP installed on my 150GB HDD, i want to install Vista Buissness 64 Bit. I will need to resize the exsisting XP (probally to about 20GB) then with the rest of the then unpartitioned space partition it to NTFS Logical. Then boot from the Vista CD and when installing choose that partition and it should just do it. Correct?

    thanks

    Why only 20 gigs for XP? Take into account the amount of free space needed for virtual memory.

    Why on earth would you need more than that to get XP to run properly? VM only really needs double your RAM value... so unless he's running 8GB or something more....?! Even then you'd probably have space spare...
