View Thread: Installing Vista without formatting drive
  • User profile image

    i can verify that vista will not automatically reformat a partition. 

    when i installed vista, i did it to my boot drive (which was running xp) and chose not to do an upgrade.  when the install was done, it moved documents&settings, windows, and program files to "windows.old", and left everyother folder alone.
