ok do this.
Take off whatever files you want...so back it up...then interest a vista disk....boot it...format the disk, install vista. Once you get into the OS...just run the Recovery Disk program...therefore, you know the drive is formatted. Just make sure you load on the same OS...aka Vista to run the Recovery, you wouldn't be able to run the Recovery if you load Xp.
