XP can be installed on FAT32 instead of NTFS, so it is possible that the
installer is correct. If your XP is really installed on FAT32 you can
either shrink your XP partition to make extra room for Vista -- or you
can convert your XP partition from FAT32 to NTFS, and then go ahead with
Is your XP really installed on a FAT32 filesystem? Right-click on
your C: drive in windows explorer and choose 'Properties'. If you
look around you should be able to find it somewhere.

That is probably because you entered your Vista product key at
the beginning of the upgrade. Vista can tell that your key is only
for upgrade and yes, it will tell you to start from inside XP.
You can install by booting the DVD, but then you must not enter
any key when it asks you for it.
