Install Vista on HDD
This sounds like a fairly easy process, but, no, it's not really in my situation. I have Windows Vista on my computer. I downloaded it from Windows Marketplace for speed since I'm leaving to New Mexico on Saturday and I'd like to get my new computer up and running before then. I do not have any discs to burn, I have a few 700 MB discs but when I open the file all the files expand to 5 GB or so. I do have a 4 GB flash drive, but, once the files expand on the flash drive during installation, it'll flood the flash drive. Am I correct?
So, I've made up my mind that I want to install Vista on my D:/ Drive BEFORE I take the drive out and put it in my new computer. So, the D: drive will have Vista pre-installed and then I can just boot up. Saves me time and energy. When I tried to do this before, it gave me an error, telling me that it couldn't create a "partition folder" or something. I had like 150 GB of free space at the time, so, I figured it was trying to install Vista on my default C:/ Drive instead of my D:/ Drive, since my C:/ Drive only has 8 GB of free space on it.
Is there a file or something I can edit to tell Vista to install on my D:/ Drive? Because, at this point, I'm not exactly sure and I'd rather not screw anything up.
Thank you, please help me to the best of your ability, you guys have helped me a lot in the past few days, but, if I can get this going, I won't be needing too much help for awhile... I hope!
