Vista Upgrade
I currently have XP PRO installed on a system using RAID 1

Because I made some mistake replacing hard drives in the past my primary
boot drive is F: and the system has no C:

I would like to install Vista Ultimate, as a clean install, by installing a
new SATA drive, as C: Then installing Vista on the C: Drive. Then using the
settings and transfer wizard to move info from the F: drive.

At the same time I want to upgrade the CPU and install a new TV tuner card.

I don't care about a dual boot but I would leave the F: Drive intact until
I'm sure everything is OK. Then just use it as an ancillary drive.

Is this scheme something that will work?

Re: Vista Upgrade
Your best bet is to run your Windows Easy Transfer first. Install your new
drive and change your BIOS to make it the first in HD boot priority (usually
requires two settings) and the DVD drive in first position in boot priority
if you can't select during boot time. Install Vista, restore your settings
and enjoy.
