Technical install question
Here's my plan.
XP on single SATA drive C. Buy new SATA drive. Disconnect XP drive
and connect new unformated drive. Boot from Ultimate CD then format
and install Vista. Reconnect XP drive, reboot. Now I think vista
will see the XP drive and assign it a letter behind the DVD drives
giving me access to all of my data on the XP drive. Are there holes
in my plan? If not then the BIG question is:
If I run into a deal breaker for Vista can I then disconnect the Vista
drive and boot back into XP and forget the whole thing or will Vista,
upon the first mount of the XP driv, see that it is a bootable drive
and write to the boot sector making the XP drive now unbootable?
