    I have tried Diskeeper 2007, O O Defrag 8.x.x, and a couple others.. None will install..
    It's a new version of windows that isn't properly finished, what did you expect?

    Even me (who normally keeps my pc up-to-date) Isn't Using it as my default windows as I do not trust Microsoft with it.

    Thats why I say give it a few months or even a year before installing it as default.

              I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 with 2GB ram but I believe a rubbish graphics card (not important to me). While I won't be moving to Vista as my main machine until it has settled down a bit, I have had time to test all the software I use and most likely bought a new computer - is it worth dual booting? Is it going to run on this sort of machine (hardly cutting edge).

              Also, what sort of space am I going to need, and what would be the best way to create a partition on an active laptop without screwing everything up?

              Thanks guys

                  Go into Microsoft partner program website and you will find it under products (providing you are certified).

                    I think it is definately worth dual booting.
                    Youll need about 1.2 GB for the Vista installation.
                    You could use partition magic to create the partition, on an active drive.

                        What was i thinking when i wrote that i must have been half asleep.

                        System Req = 40 GB of hard drive capacity with 15 GB free space.

                        Yes, you can boot from an external USB drive, are you installing onto that?

                            If I can install onto an external USB drive then I will definitely try it out; trying to find a spare 15GB or so on my laptop drive would leave me rather close to comfort.

                              You can install to an external USB drive. My first bug report was about installing to external drives. With the first few builds you couldn't install at all if you had a USB drive hooked up. That bug was fixed in beta 2. Beta 2 was the first build I was not only able to install with the USB drives hooked up, previously I would have to disconnect them and then connect them after install, I could install to the USB drives.
                              If you have an external drive give it a go.

                                Thanks AWS. Will I need to use something like partition magic on the USB drive as well?
