Installing Vista 32 bit over existing 64 bit
I have Vista 64 bit intalled on my computer, but due to various
incomatibility problems with other programs, I am going to have to reinstall
a totally new Vista 32 bit over it and start over. My only question is does
the install start up disk for the 32 bit retail version of Vista give you the
option to totally reformat the HD ( I have a 750GB SATA) prior to
installation ( which is what I do want done), or do I somehow have to
reformat the drive first and then do a clean install on the then newly
formatted drive?

Hi Rick,

Yes, you will have the option to format during setup.
