Actually You need at least 40 gigabytes minimum for Vista to work well. The only thing that You can do is to format the hard drive, and re-install Vista with at least 40 gigabytes available in its partition.

How to make partition of a 550 GB SATA internal harddisk


That would be up to you, and how you want to manage space. Creating a partition for C may leave you with limitations down the line (space wise). The other thing is defrag. A large partition can take a long time to defrag. In this case there is no right or wrong answer.

How to make dual boot with window xp vista and windows 7


Dual booting Windows is the most challenging of the three options; however, making it work can be very rewarding. The process of creating a dual boot environment differs from Windows Vista to XP. Please follow the instructions according to which version of Windows you are currently using.
To run two operating systems on your computer, you will need to add a second partition. If you are not familiar with adding a partition, you can learn how in this section. Please note: each operating system will be able to see the other partition; thus, you can share files between them.

Dual Boot with window x and windows 7

You will need third party software to create a second partition for Windows 7; once you have created the partition, you can install Windows 7 on it.

Create a New Partition (Vista)

Click the Start button, right click Computer, and clickManage

In the left pane, click Disk Management

Now create a new partition by shrinking a previous volume so you can use the newly created space. Right click on the partition and clickShrink Volume.

Now right click the free space and click New Simple Volume…
Specify the volume size and click Next

Format the drive as NTFS, give it a label, and click Next

Power on your computer, insert the Windows 7 DVD, and restart your computer

Press the necessary key to initiate booting from your DVD (usually Esc or F12.)

Windows will now load the installation files.

Click Install now
Your computer will restart several times during the process as it configures itself and installs updates Be sure to leave the DVD in the drive and let Windows take care of itself.


Memory (RAM) – 1.25 GB required, 2 GB memory recommended.
Recommended 15 GB hard disk space per virtual Windows environment.
NB: Windows XP Mode is only available in Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 7 Professional, and Windows 7 Ultimate.

when this happened to me on my Vista machine last year, I freaked out until I accidentally fixed it using by booting with my original Vista boot disc, and choosing 'Repair OS'. Try finding a/your original Windows XP install disc and seeing if it will repair and replace your own Windows boot sector. It would be best to find the one that came with your system, or another like it, but if all else fails, just try a hologrammed Windows XP install CD, but instead of 'install', choose 'repair'.

How to download vista,and wat is the requirments need for vista


Please Dont install VISTA, it is bloated, slow and buggy.
Either stick with XP or use Windows 7, 7 is far better than Vista.
If you are after a free download, try this 1 http://isohunt.com/torrent_details/204960365/windows+7?tab=summary
, you will need a torrent client like Utorrent, this is here http://www.utorrent.com/downloads
The download will take a while, it will come with an activation patch.
You usually install windows 7 without the serial, then run the patch after to make it genuine.

Low disk space winsxs is 10 gb how do I delete this file pls


The bad news are that i don’t recommend doing any manual removals on winsxs folder. Such a step could probably make your applications non-workable or even break your system!
If you have Vista sp1 installed use the vsp1cln.exe : The utility removes all Vista SP1 uninstall files and by using it you can reduce few gigs.
To run vsp1cln.exe:
  • Press on vista start button type cmd.exe and hit on enter.
  • hen enter the following command:Vsp1cln.exe and press enter key
  • You will be asked to confirm your action , just press “Y” and after few minutes your winsxs will be smaller.
Other ways to reduce the winsxs folder:
  • You can uninstall non needed application
  • If you have office 2007 installed , and you can get later distribution like with sp1 included – uninstall your entire office, and install the version that includes sp files.

If you're using the original XP version it wasn't able to format the correct size of the hard drives. You need to find a version with Service Pack 2 and boot off that CD in order to format the correct size of the drives. You could also boot off a Vista installation CD and format the correct size.
