Default Re: Upgrading to Vista from OEM disc

yea thats the grub boot loader (i think its called, i dont know much about linux). i hated that. i think theres other boot managers you can download or surely theres a way to change it just like xp.
you could just create a 10gb partition and install and save everything on your c drive. that will work perfectly fine and you will be able to access it on both os's without doing anything. although id go with 15gb just to be sure. as i usually still store some things on my vista partition and the more free space the better the disk defragmentation will work

Laptop spec: ASUS X53E, i5 2430m 2.4ghz, 3gb ram, 320gb hdd, intel hd graphics, usb 3.0
